Good morning Saint John’s students, faculty and staff.  Let us pause in our day to pray. Today we celebrate the feast of the Ascension, the final event of the Paschal Mystery in which Christ ascends into Heaven.  It is the concluding work of redemption. Let us give glory to the Lord for his wondrous, saving works.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, right before your Ascension into heaven you told your apostles to be His witnesses to the ends of the earth upon receiving the Holy Spirit. May I be similarly inspired to spread your Gospel message in word and deed, according to your will for me. And may I do so prudently and joyfully, with your help, your guidance, and your grace! And remembering this glorious event, help me to seek what is above, Heaven, where you are seated at the right hand of God the Father. In your mighty name, we pray. Amen
Thank you and have an excellent day!
