Vigil of the Ascension, and a Note on Ascension Thursday Sunday Thursday

Today is the Vigil of the Ascension, and the last of the Rogation Days, with the lesser litanies.

I take this opportunity to wish you a blessed Ascension Thursday, and to let you know that if you actually wish to celebrate Ascension Thursday on the actual day-- you know, 1) Ascension and 2) Thursday, the Oratory has Mass at 8 am and 6:30 pm.

For your reading pleasure, a previous post on the abomination of Ascension Thursday Sunday.

Ascension Thursday's Sunday
Corpus Christi got the boot
And this year since it's Saturday
Assumption 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.
