Let us remember the Ascension of Christ, at which the Mother of God was present. Let us pray and ask the Queen of Heaven to raise our souls from earthly and worldly amusements and direct them to striving for higher things.


Our Father, Who art in the Heavens, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

Open unto us the door of thy loving kindness, O blessed Mother of God;
in that we set our hope on thee, we may not go astray;
but through thee may we be delivered from all adversities,
for thou art the salvation of all Christian people.
