The Institution of the Eucharist
, JOOS van Wassenhove,
from Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Urbino

I came across this unique imagery concerning the Feast of the Ascension, which we will be celebrating this weekend. The painting above is of Jesus' initiating the first Eucharist. Through Jesus' ascension into heaven, he now returns to us, by the power of the Holy Spirit, each time we celebrate the Mass. He had to leave us to give us this gift, so that He could be with us always.
