Jesus rises from the tomb
Early next morning, while it was still dark, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb and found the stone rolled aside from the entrance. ‘They have taken my Lord’s body from the tomb,’ she said, ‘and I don’t know where they have laid him.’
The rising sun reveals not only an empty tomb, but a spark of faith and hope that ever so slowly conquers doubt and fear – and the Risen Lord lives on through the ages in the minds and hearts of his disciples.
Beyond the horizons of your suffering, Lord, you found the light of resurrection; be my guide through the darkest tunnels of my life and bathe me too, in your resurrection light.
