This reflection on the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord is based on Matthew 28:16-20.

There is a special slab of stoneĀ found in the Chapel of the Ascension on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. That rock has been revered by Christians for centuries since itĀ is believed to bear the right footprint of our Lord right before he ascended to heaven (the half bearing the left is housed in a mosque). Hence, its name: the Ascension Rock.
