Nonetheless, I've been taking solace in the gorgeous antiphons of the liturgy, starting last night with Evening Prayer I. They are so worth dwelling on as you go for a walk or go about chores. Just pick one favorite and come back to it all day.
-I came forth from the Father and have come into the world; now I leave the world to return to the Father.
-After he spoke to his disciples, the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven where he is seated at the right hand of the Father.
-No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man, who is in heaven.
-I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.
-Sing to God, sing psalms to his name, make a path for him who rides high above the clouds.
-Men of Galilee, why are you looking up into the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up to heaven will return in the same way.
-Do not leave us orphans, but send us the Father's promised gift of the Spirit of truth.
