Ascension Thursday-Our Liturgical Loss

Jesus went up to heaven 40 days after Easter, not 43.

There are 9 days between Ascension and Pentecost, not 7.

These things are important.

The Canadian Bishops amongst others need to restore Ascension to Thursday along with Epiphany to January 6, from where we get Twelfth Night and the Twelve Days of Christmas.

These things are important.

Now there is the Octave of Pentecost and the Gesima Sundays.
