Ascension of Christ / Giacomo Cavedone / Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Almighty God, we praise you
for the exaltation of your Son
our Savior Jesus Christ
to your right hand.
Through his Incarnation,
he has conquered sin, evil and death
and by his glorious ascension
he is triumphantly reigning
over all of creation.
Grant us the ability and desire to follow our Sovereign King
that one day we may be exalted to where he is:
living and reigning with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
Porter C. Taylor, American Anglican Priest
from a Patheos blog post
Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith:
Christ was revealed in a human body
and vindicated by the Spirit.
He was seen by angels
and announced to the nations.
He was believed in throughout the world
and taken to heaven in glory.
