Monday 9th May: The Ascension of the Lord

The Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


Yesterday was the feast of the Ascension of Jesus into heaven. In this reflection we can learn more about this important event in Jesus’ life and what it means to us in our lives.


God our Father,
make us joyful
in the ascension of your Son Jesus Christ.
May we follow him into the new creation,
for his ascension is our glory and our hope.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
