In this week’s Gospel we read of Jesus’ Ascension to heaven. The Apostles realized that Christ’s Resurrection and Ascension was not something that happened only to Jesus, but that it is a promise from God for abundant life, and victory over death and sin in all its forms.
1st Reading: Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48
When Peter entered, Cornelius met him
and, falling at his feet, paid him homage.
Peter, however, raised him up, saying,
“Get up. I myself am also a human being.”
