Thursday, May 26th, is a Holy Day of Obligation. Mass attendance and refraining from servile work are obligatory. Fr. Stephen Sandquist, CMRI, will offer Holy Mass for Ascension Thursday at 6 pm in Chelsea, OK.
“This Ascension, which enthroned our Emmanuel as the eternal centre of light, was by His own decree, to take place on one of the days of the month which men call May, and which clothes in its richest beauty the creation of this same God, who, when He had made it, was pleased with it, and found it very good. Sweet month of May! Not gloomy and cold like December, which brought us the humble joys of Bethlehem; not lowering and clouded like March, when the Lamb was sacrificed on Calvary; but buoyant with sunshine, and flowers, and life, and truly worthy to be offered, each year, to Mary, the Mother of God, for it is the month of her Jesus’ triumph.” Dom Gueranger, OSB, The Liturgical Year
