The Ascension of Our Lord

The Roman Catholic Church celebrates the Holy Day of Obligation, the Ascension, on May 8 this year. It has long been a custom in iconography depicting the Ascension to show Mary in the midst of the Apostles at the moment when Jesus Christ ascended into heaven. Today, Mary Page shares with you two images in our Marian Library prints:
