The Collect

Grant, we pray, almighty God,

that as we believe your only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ

to have ascended into the heavens,

so we in heart and mind may also ascend

and with him continually dwell;

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

God our Father

you have raised our humanity in Christ

and have fed us with the bread of heaven;

we may set our hearts in heavenly places;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
