Et Dóminus quidem Jesus, postquam loctútus est eis, assúmptus est in cœlum, et sedet a dextris Dei. Illi autem profécti prædicavérunt ubíque, Dómino cooperánte, et sermonem confirmánte, sequéntibus signis.

The Feast of the Ascension, still celebrated in the traditional calendar on Thursday, is May 14 this year.
