Today is the Ascension of Our Lord.
The Ascension of Christ

I shall observe the Solemnity liturgically at a High Mass in the Extrordinary Form at the Oxford Oratory this eveving at 6pm. Like, I think, virtually all my friends I wish to observe the Ascension on Ascension Day, not transfer it three days hence. Other Christians in this country keep the feast today- it makes sense to do so as Catholics with them and in communion with past centuries.
