Ascension Day is on the 40th day of Easter, when Jesus ascended into heaven.
Let us pray that the risen Christ will lead us to eternal life.
God our Father, make us joyful in the ascension of your Son Jesus Christ.
May we follow him into the new creation, for his ascension is our glory and our hope.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
(New Saint Joseph Sunday Missal)
