The Ascension of the Lord



After your passion, you appeared to your disciples, and they knew you to be alive: strengthen our belief that you are with us today. On this day you promised the Holy Spirit to the apostles, for the spreading of your gospel to the ends of the earth. Strengthen us by the power of the Spirit in bearing witness before the world.

Almighty God, fill us with a holy joy, teach us how to thank you with reverence and love on account of the ascension of Christ your Son. You have raised us up with him; where he, the head, has preceded us in glory, are called in hope, we pray through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
