Ascension Thursday 2009
edit_button


Today is the 1st Class Feast of the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ into Heaven!

Gradual:

Alleluia, alleluia. V.: God is ascended with a shout, and the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. Alleluia. V.: (Ps. 67. 18). The Lord is in Sinai, in the holy place; ascending on high He hath led captivity captive.

Now is also the time to begin a Novena in Preparation for the Feast of Pentecost.
To all faithful who devoutly participate at a public Novena held in honor fo the Holy Ghost, is granted: Indulgence of 10 years each day. -- Plenary, if they were present at least five times at these exercises, under the usual conditions, and with a prayer for the intention of His Holiness.

To those, however, who shall perform privately these exercises, with the intention to do so nine consecutive days, is granted: Indulgence of 7 years, once a day. -- Plenary, on the usual conditions, for the complete novena and if they are hindered by any reasonable cause from performing this exercise in public.. -- P. P. O. n. 263.

How beautiful! Thanks for taking the time to do this. I sometimes wonder, just how am I to spread the word of God, when I really don't meet new people and it doesn't just come up in ordinary conversation with friends & neighbors. I see that doing something like you did, by posting, you are encouraging what you believe in. Neat. Deb :)
