"Let them prefer absolutely nothing to Christ"

(RB 72: 11)

Ascension Sunday



Entrance Antiphon:

Men of Galilee, why gaze in wonder at the heavens?

This Jesus whom you saw ascending into heaven

will return as you saw him go, alleluia. 



Gladden us with holy joys, almighty God,

and make us rejoice with defout thanksgiving,

for the Ascension of Christ your Son is our exaltation,

and, where the Head has gone before in glory,

the Body is called to follow in hope.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
