Commentary on the Gospel of
Read:. The “empty tomb experience” of Mary Magdalene, Peter, and John lead them to believe in the resurrection. God does not show partiality – the fruits of his resurrection are for all those who believe in him, beyond the limitations of class, creed or color.
Reflect: “We don’t know where they have laid him.” is the lament of Mary of Magdala. Sooner than later shall she know where he has been laid – deep in her heart as her very life. The dead Jesus who had been buried reveals himself, as Paul tells us, as the risen Christ hidden within the very being of every Christian. The tomb shall remain empty – for Christ has migrated to our hearts. Christ “easters” in us and we embody him. We are the living witnesses to the resurrection of Christ. Do our lives reveal this truth?
Pray: Lord Jesus, help us embody you before the world.
Act: Do an act worthy of the Risen Lord.
