Lord, how good it is for us to be here -- Matthew 17

Celebrate the Easter Season

 

 

 

But Easter isn’t just a day. Did you know that? In the Christian Calendar it is a season that lasts 50 days! In other words: the next 50 days should be celebrated as a single joyful feast. The celebration shouldn’t temper down, rather it’s only just begun. This is a period of fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday.

Divine Mercy Sunday
Divine Mercy Sunday is celebrated on the Sunday after Easter, the Octave Day of Easter. This year on Sunday, April 19. The celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday is an opportunity to reflect on the theme of how God’s mercy can overcome sin.

Ascension of the Lord
This feast takes place forty days after Easter on what is referred to as Ascension Thursday. The feast of the Ascension is a crucial element in the Easter story. Jesus had to ascend to the throne from which he came in order for the gates of heaven to be opened for waiting souls to enter eternity. Jesus had to ascend to his Father for salvation to be complete and fulfilled. It was not simply the resurrection that accomplished salvation—the ascension was needed to complete it.
