Hail Which Festival Day?
Men of Galilee,
why are you standing there looking at the sky?
This Jesus who is to be taken up from you into heaven
had to re-schedule his departure
to the following Sunday
in order to accomodate the busy schedules
of the faithful.
Now, get back to work.
(Acts 1:11, dynamic equivalent translation)
Can I get an "Amen" in the house?
[UPDATE: Someone recently brought to my attention, the musings of Sacred Miscellany on this subject. Wish I'd written that.]
