Second Glorious Mystery
Let Us Reflect:
The apostles witness as Jesus ascends triumphantly into Heaven.
“But He (Jesus) said to them (the Apostles)… and you shall be witnesses unto Me in Jerusalem, ... and even to the uttermost part of the earth. And when He had said these things, while they looked on, He was raised up. And while they were beholding Him going up to Heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to Heaven? This Jesus Who is taken up from you into Heaven, shall so come, as you have seen Him going into Heaven…” (Acts 1:7-11)
Let Us Pray:
We offer Thee, O Lord Jesus, this decade in honor of Thy glorious Ascension, and we ask of Thee, through this mystery and through the intercession of Thy Blessed Mother, the grace of firm hope and great longing for Heaven.
