Ascension & St. Bede

on

Blessings on this double feast day on which the feast of St. Bede the Venerable coincides with the Ascension … which happened also in 735, on the day St. Bede was gathered to his heavenly home. (Northumbria at this time of year is a splendid reflection of heaven, I’m sure.)  Here is a link to an article that reflects on the coincidence of the two feast days on the same day and includes an extensive quote from Brother Cuthbert’s stirring account of St. Bede’s last days.
