Christ has Ascended! Glorify Him!


May 29, 2022
Sunday after the Ascension of Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ
Sunday of the Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council

You ascended in glory, O Christ our God, * granting joy to Your disciples by the promise of the Holy Spirit; * through this blessing they were assured * that You are the Son of God * the Redeemer of the world!

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

When You fulfilled the divine plan for us * and united things on earth with things in heaven, * You ascended in glory, O Christ our God, * in no way departing from us but remaining inseparable, * and crying out to those who love You: “I am with you, and no one is against you.”

The icon is of the Ascension of the Lord.
