The Solemnity of the Ascension

Today, forty days after the celebration of Pascha, the Church celebrates the Ascension of her Lord to that heavenly realm where we are assured that Christ is making ready a place for us. May this Ascension festival strengthen your faith in the truth, and may the assuring words of the Gospel today give you the hope of everlasting life.

Almighty God, as your only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, ascended into the heavens, so may we also ascend in heart and mind and continually dwell there with him, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
