The Ascension of Christ, by Fritz von Uhde, 1897

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

John 14:1-3

(All US ecclesiastical provinces, except Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Omaha, and Philadelphia, have transferred the celebration of the Ascension of the Lord to the 7th Sunday of Easter.)
