Thank you to the liturgical discussion lists for keeping us honest. Since we have transferred the celebration of Ascension to Sunday I forgot that today is the actual date of the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord. Blessed Ascension to all who will celebrate the Feast today!
Today is also the commemoration of St. Philip and St. James, Apostles. From the collect we read, ". . . Grant us perfectly to know Your Son, Jesus Christ, to be the way, the truth, and the life, and steadfastly walk in the way that leads to eternal life . . ." (LSB)
