"Look! Up in the sky!"

Happy Feast of the Ascension.

"And the Lord Jesus, after He had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God." Mk. 16:19

"And it came to pass, whilst He blessed them, He departed from them, and was carried up to heaven." Lk. 24:51

"And when He had said these things, while they looked on, He was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding Him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. Who also said: 'Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven.' " Acts 1:9-11

Viri Galilaei, quid statis aspicientes in coelum?
Hic Iesus, qui assumptus est a vobis in coelum, sic veniet, quemadmodum vidistis eum euntem in coelum. Alleluia.

Ascendit Deus in jubilatione, et Dominus in voce tubae. Alleluia.
Dominus in coelo paravit sedem suam. Alleluia.*



*Ye men of Galilee, why do you stand there, gazing at heaven?
This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall come back the same way you saw Him going into heaven. Alleluia.
God has ascended in jubilation, and the Lord with the sound of trumpet. Alleluia.
The Lord has prepared His throne in heaven. Alleluia.
