Ascendit Christus super cælos..

"Christ ascended above the heavens, and prepared a place of immortality for his most chaste Mother: and this is that goodly festival, incomparable to the feasts of all the Saints, on which the Glorious and Happy, all the orders of the heavenly court a-wondering, came to the ethereal nuptial chamber: so that no one should be unmindful of the pious memory of it."

-Magnificat antiphon, first vespers.

The office today is so lovely. And so was today's mass, even if I was so drugged up on Alavert that I barely remember it. Notes to come later.
