Acts 2:1-2; John 20:19 (adapted) [Latin]

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

Dum complerentur dies pentecostes (from Liber primus motettorum,1569), composed by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)

English: Ascension of Christ

Ascension of Christ by Garofalo, 1476-1559 (Image via Wikipedia)

Acts 1:11; Psalm 47:5; Psalm 103:19 [Latin]

11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
