GOSPEL COMMUNION: Ascension Day

May 30, 2019 : Ascension Day (in places where this is observed today)

The Collegeville Composers opted for an antiphon taking John 16:22. We do indeed “see God again” in Holy Communion and our hearts rejoice in it. The psalm verses — from John 14, 15, 16, Rev 1 and Acts 1 — are taken from the communion antiphons for the days between Ascension and Pentecost: we will not be left as orphans, and we look forward to the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost.
