15. The Resurrection and Ascension
On palm Sunday, the Lord resurrected as predicted, appearing to Mary Magdalene, to the Apostles and to the disciples. Although it is not written in the holy Scripture, we must assume that he appeared first before his Blessed Mother.
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the center or point of reference for all celebrations, Easter is the ultimate triumph of God among men.
After spending forty days with his disciples, the Lord ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God. The Church celebrates this event on the feast of the Ascension.
