Dear Friend in the Lord,
At the Tomb: In today’s Gospel, when the three women went to Jesus’ tomb to anoint the Body of Jesus, the angel revealed to them that Jesus has Risen! Ponder on, “Jesus Rising from His Death, fulfils God’s Promise of Eternal Life. Otherwise, we are doomed to eternal suffering when we die.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
When the sabbath was over, Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices with which to go and anoint him. And very early in the morning on the first day of the week they went to the tomb just when the sun was rising. They had been saying to one another, ‘Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?’ But when they looked they could see that the stone — which was very big — had already been rolled back.
On entering the tomb they saw a young man in a white robe seated on the right-hand side, and they were struck with amazement. But he said to them, ‘There is no need for alarm. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: he has risen, he is not here. See, here is the place where they laid him. But you must go and tell his disciples and Peter, “He is going before you to Galilee; it is there you will see him, just as he told you” ’
