Feast of the Ascension
The fortieth day after Easter Sunday. As a holy day of obligation, Catholics commemorate the ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven.
Reflection: “They were still looking up into the heavens when two men dressed in white stood beside them. ‘Men of Galilee,’ they said, ‘why do you stand here looking up at the skies? This Jesus who has been taken from you will return, just as you saw him go up into the heavens.” (Acts 1:10-11)
