On Thursday 21 May the Coptic Church celebrates Ascension Day.
The icon, by Wagdy Habashy depicts Christ ascending to Heaven
“And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven” (Luke 24:51).
He ascended as His disciples looked on, His promise lingering in their ears: “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20).
