Vigil of the Ascension

At that time, Jesus lifting up His eyes to Heaven said: Father, the hour is come; glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son may glorify Thee, as Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He may give eternal life to all whom Thou hast given Him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent. I have glorified Thee on the earth; I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do; and now glorify Thou Me, O Father, with Thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world was, with Thee. I have manifested Thy Name to the men whom Thou hast given Me out of the world. Thine they were, and to Me Thou givest them, and they have kept Thy word. Now they have known that all things which Thou hast given Me are from Thee: because the words which Thou gavest Me, I have given to them: and they have received them, and have known in very deed that I came out from Thee, and they have believed that Thou didst send Me. I pray for them; I pray not for the world, but for them whom Thou hast given Me; because they are Thine: and all My things are Thine, and Thine are Mine: and I am glorified in them. And now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to Thee.

John 17: 1-11

Ascension Thursday's Sunday
Corpus Christi got the boot
And this year since it's Saturday
All Saints' Day will be moot.

'Cause Saturday's by Sunday
And Monday just won't scoot
And two days in a row for God
That's yielding too much fruit.

So if we play our cards right
Let money trump all suits,
We'll end all militant Sundays
Obliging happy pursuits.

A Blessed Ascension Thursday to true Catholics!!
