O King of glory, Lord of hosts,

celebrate Thine Ascension to the Father,
may not be fettered by the chains of sin to earthly loves.
And may the aim of our unceasing prayer
be directed toward the heavens whither,
after Thy Passion,
Thou didst ascend in glory.
Suddenly there came a sound from heaven,
as of a violent wind blowing,
and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak of the wonderful works of God [Acts 2:2, 4, 11].
Or, do you not know that your members
are the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you?
Do not extinguish the Spirit.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God
in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption [1 Cor. 6:19; 1 Thess. 5:19; Eph. 4:30].

May the Eucharist bring me Your Forgiveness
and give me freedom to serve You all my life.
May it help me to remain faithful
and give me ... continue reading
