He said to them, "Do not be amazed! You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him. Mark 16:6
Alleluia, Our Lord is Risen, rejoice and be glad. How lucky for us that the angels were there to reveal to the women that he is not there. Such testimony from those who love Jesus. They went to prepare him as was the custom, but being it the Sabbath they could not. So finally when it was time, they encountered a messenger instead. They were shocked, fearful. That's understandable. I think we would be too. I would be in awe, it's not everyday we witness a powerful moment. Yet these woman have.
Dear God you raised up your Son for our belief. He has been bathed in Divine light, a radiance so brilliant. He has fulfilled a prophecy of old. In Jesus' ressurrection we are reborn in his light, his saving grace.
Heavenly Father, we lost your Son, because of our sins. You have raised Him up to reveal Your Divine Love. May we, who live today, come to know the Radiance of Your love.
