The Ascension of Our Lord






Today we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord. Well, at least those of you fortunate enough to be able to hear an Old Rite Mass will. Ascension Thursday in England and Wales is celebrated on Sunday as an External Solemnity. Below is the Collect from today's Mass and Divine Office.


Concede, quaesumus omnipotens Deus: ut qui hodierna die Unigenitum tuum Redemptorem nostrum ad caelos ascendisse credimus, ipsi quoque mente in caelestibus habitemus.

Per eundem Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum Filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.


R. Amen.
