Easter

Mk 16: 1-7

When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. 

As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you.”

Experiencing the Risen Christ

The empty tomb and the message from the nice, young man reignited the faith and hope of the first disciples.  In the days that followed, Jesus made a few brief visits to reestablish his connection with the disciples and to strengthen their confidence.

Every Easter, we are invited to share the faith and hope of the early disciples.  We do not have a young man in a white robe to explain to us the meaning of the resurrection, but we have Saints Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to help us understand.  Jesus does not appear to us in the same way that he appeared to his first followers, but we experience Jesus in our own lives even so.  More than that, we trust the experiences of those who have preceded us and know that Jesus is still alive and working in the world.

Prayer

Jesus, our Savior and King, we rejoice at your resurrection!  We thank you for the first disciples and generations of followers who have helped to keep the flame of faith alive and have passed it on to us.  Please help us remain close to you and generously respond to your invitations. Amen.
