Ascension Thursday

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God: that we, who believe Thine only-begotten Son, our Redeemer, to have ascended on this day into heaven, may also ourselves dwell in mind amid heavenly things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who livest and reignest with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God Forever and ever. Amen.

Collect for the Ascension

Masses at the Oratory today at 8 am, 12:15 pm and Solemn High Mass at 6:30 pm.

The bulletin also shows a 12:15 low mass. Do you know if this is correct or a misprint? We were planning on trekking down there this afternoon.

In the gold mouth
Of the morning
I knead the bread
From wheat.

Mix broccoli, bacon
In wooden bowl
Add raisins
Sugared sweet.

A Burgundy wine
From His own grape
Marinating beef
Will seep.

Then later boil
Egg noodles, white
Pile in a
Buttered heap.

Chocolate cake
Oh what a gift
Cocoa bean!

All day prepared
And used His cloth
From cotton plant
To clean.

The guests all gather
Toast the Feast
We pray, we laugh
And eat.

Then with our coffees
Outside crisp
Round fire
Take a seat.

For today is a Feast
Ascension Thursday
No bother cold
No grief.

And to top it off
We have some smokes
From His glorious
Tobacco leaf!

Then fire’s flames
Faint to a glow
Some stare
As it looses its might.

While others sigh
For sleep is nigh…
And smoke streams into the black-silk
Of His night.
