In Ascensione Domini

The Ascension of Christ
Gebhard Fugel (1863-1939)

Concede, quaesumus, omnipotens Deus: ut, qui hodierna die Unigenitum tuum Redemptorem nostrum ad caelos ascendisse credimus, ipsi quoque mente in caelestibus habitemus.

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that we who believe Thine only-begotten Son, our Redeemer, to have this day ascended into heaven, may ourselves dwell in spirit amid heavenly things.


For my readers in Southern Germany and Northern Switzerland:

His Excellency Bishop Vitus Huonder will be celebrating a Pontifical High Mass in the Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady, in Uhldingen-Birnau (Baden-W├╝rttemberg) at 14:00 today. Also in attendance will be the seminarians of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP). The musical setting will be the Missa Prima of Claudio Crassini (1561-1632). If you're in the area, don't miss it.
