Sunday in the Octave of the Ascension 2020

Here is my Mass and sermon for Sunday in the Octave of the Ascension. As mentioned in my sermon, it was known in some places as Rose Sunday. This is not to be confused with Rosensonntag in the Germanic world, which is the fourth Sunday of Lent (Laetare).

I will record the liturgy of the Vigil and Day of Pentecost, and afterwards will trust that people still being deprived of liturgical services in church and the Sacraments will find other streamed or recorded liturgies. Here in France, churches and other places of worship are reopened but with draconian restrictions like masks and “social distancing”. People were infected in a church in Germany only about a week ago. I will continue to give an informal “spiritual conference” or explanation of the liturgy. It won’t be the kind of service I would want to attend with the same constraints as in public transport and supermarkets and other places where crowds congregate.
