Today we had a "dual" celebration! We celebrated both The Ascension of The Lord and the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima...It was glorious fun! Our activity list, with links, is listed at the end of this post.
Today's Gospel~ "Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn to joy."~John 16:20
"As the disciples were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight"~Acts 1:9~
"Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking in the sky? The Lord will return, just as you have seen him ascend, alleluia." ~Acts 1:11~
