At the fortieth day after the celebration of Easter, Christians in a special way, remember the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. This is the last time the apostles saw Jesus walk with them on earth and is one of the many mysteries of the Christian faith.
In order to prepare for the feast of the Ascension, it’s good to pray a novena, that means spending nine days in prayer before the celebration. This is a way to prepare our hearts for this feast and ponder more on the ascension of Christ.
Below is a novena prayer that can be prayed each day, looking forward to that mysterious day when Jesus ascended into the clouds of Heaven.
