1st Reading: Acts 10:34a, 37-43
Resp. Psalm Psalm 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23
2nd Reading: Colossians 3:1-4
Gospel: John 20:1-9
Alleluia! The Lord has risen! After the penances during the Lenten season we can rejoice along with the rest of the Church and live even more deeply the depth of the Paschal Mystery.
There are 4 qualities to the glorified body which Jesus has and which we will have if we go to Heaven.
Brilliance: we will shine like the stars
Agility: we will be able to move at lightning speeds
Subtility: we will be able to move through walls
Impassibility: we will no longer be capable of suffering
Why would we need all these? We do not know but this attests to the wonders of Heaven. The Easter Season points the way to the glories of Heaven. May Mary the Queen of Heaven help us on our way.
