The Ascension of the Lord (Ecclesiastical provinces of Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Omaha, and Philadelphia) Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter (All other provinces)

Christ’s Ascension is our uplifting, and the hope of the body is raised … for today not only are we confirmed as possessors of paradise, but have also in Christ penetrated the heights of heaven.

— St. Leo the Great
