“To-day,” says St. Augustine, “we shall keep the Ascension of our Lord in a fitting manner, with devotion, sanctity and piety, if we ascend with Him and keep our hearts on high.” “Let our thoughts be there, where He is, and here on earth there will be peace.” “Let us ascend with Him now, with our hearts, and when His promised day comes, we shall follow Him also with our bodies; but we should know that neither pride, nor avarice, nor lust ascend with Christ. If we wish to follow our Healer in His Ascension, we must put off the burden of our vices and sins” (Matins).
The Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Allen. A Luncheon will follow in St Jane Hall.
