 My Catholic Faith
Forty days after the Resurrection, our Lord Jesus Christ, attended by Angels, ascendedinto heaven, in the sight of His most holy Mother, His Apostles, and disciples, to the greatwonder of them all.He entered into possession of the Kingdom of Heaven which had gained by His sufferings,
and St. Paul declares that God “hath made us sit together in the heavenly places, throughChrist Jesus” “There where the Head has gone, the Body is called to follow!”
 Acts. 1. 10
 Ye men of Galilee, why wonder you, look-ing up to heaven? alleluia. He shall so comeas you have seen Him going up into heaven,alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. Ps. O, clap yourhands, all ye nations; shout unto God, withthe voice of exultation. V. Glory be to theFather.COLLECTGrant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, thatwe who believe Thine only-begotten Son, ourRedeemer, to have this day as-cended intoheaven, may ourselves dwell in spirit amidheavenly things. Through the same Lord.Introitus

[Our Lords instructions to His disciples. His Ascension into Heaven.]
The former treatise I made, O Theophilus, of all things which Jesus began to do and toteach, until the day on which, giv- ingcommandments by the Holy Ghost to theapostles whom He had chosen, He was takenup: to whom also He showed Him-self aliveafter His Passion by many proofs, for fortydays appearing to them and speaking of thekingdom of God. And eating together withthem, He commanded them that they shouldnot depart from Jerusalem, but should waitfor the promise of the Father, which you haveheard (saith He) by My mouth: for Johnindeed bap-tized with water, but you shall bebaptized with the Holy Ghost not many dayshence. They therefore who were cometogether asked Him, saying: Lord, wilt Thouat this time restore again the kingdom toIsrael? But He said to them: It is not for youto know the times or moments, which theFather hath put in His own power: but youshall receive the power of the Holy Ghostcoming upon you, and you shall be wit-nesses unto Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judeaand Samaria, and even to the utter-most partof the earth. And when He had said thesethings, while they looked on, He was raisedup: and a cloud received Him out of theirsight. And while they were be-holding Himgoing up to heaven, behold two men stood bythem in white garments, who also said: Yemen of Galilee, why stand you looking up toheaven? This Je-sus, who is taken up fromyou into heaven, shall so come, as you haveseen Him going into heaven.PRIMUM quidem sermónem feci de
ómnibus, o Theóphile, quæ cœpit Jesus
fácere et docére, usque in diem, qua,præcípiens Apóstolis per Spíritum Sanctum,
quos elégit, assúmptus est: quibus et prǽbuit
seípsum vivum post passiónem suam inmultis arguméntis, per dies quadragíntaappérens eis et loquens de regno Dei. Etconvéscens, præcépit eis ab Jerosólymis nediscéderent, sed exspectárent promissiónemPatris, quam audistis (inquit) per os meum;quia Joánnes quidem baptizávit aqua, vosautem baptizabímini Spíritu Sancto non postmultos hos dies. Igitur qui convénerant,interrogábant eum, dicéntes: Dómine, si intémpore hoc restítues regnum Israël? Dixitautem eis: Non est vestrum nosse témporavel moménta quæ Pater pósuit in suapotestáte: sed accipiétis virtútemsuperveniéntis Spíritus Sancti in vos, et éritis
mihi testes in Jerúsalem, et in omni Judǽ et
Samaría, et usque ad últimum terræ. Et cumhæc dixísset, vidéntibus illis elevátus est: etnubes suscépit eum ab óculis eórum. Cumqueintueréntur in cælum eúntem illum, ecce duoviri astitérunt juxta illos in véstibus albis, qui
et dixérunt: Viri Galilǽi, quid statis
aspiciéntes in cælum? Hic Jesus, quiassúmptus est a vobis in cælum, sic veniet,quemádmodum vidístis eum eúntem incælum.
