Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

ASCENSION OF THE LORD

Mattia Preti, Christ ascending in Glory
Collect:
Grant, we beseech thee, almighty God: that we who believe thy only-begotten Son our Redeemer to have this day ascended into the heavens; may ourselves also in mind dwell in heavenly places, though the same Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
