The Ascension of the Lord
Then he led them out as far as Bethany,
raised his hands, and blessed them.
As he blessed them he parted from them
and was taken up to heaven.
They did him homage
and then returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
and they were continually in the temple praising God.
- Luke 24:46-53
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.
Entrance: Open Up the Heavens
Responsorial Psalm: Ps 47 God Mounts His Throne
Offertory: Sing We Triumphant Hymns of Praise
Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age, alleluia.
