Dear Friend in the Lord,

Tomb’s Day: Let us spend today in solemn silence.  Ponder on the Death of Jesus the Messiah.  He had done immense Good, showed unconditional Love and served Selflessly to the point of laying down His Life; for our sake and Salvation.  He now lies in a tomb.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 24:1-12

On the first day of the week, at the first sign of dawn, the women went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb, but on entering they could not find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they stood there puzzled about this, two men in brilliant clothes suddenly appeared at their side. Terrified, the women bowed their heads to the ground. But the two said to them, ‘Why look among the dead for someone who is alive? He is not here; he has risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee: that the Son of man was destined to be handed over into the power of sinful men and be crucified, and rise again on the third day.’

And they remembered his words. And they returned from the tomb and told all this to the Eleven and to all the others. The women were Mary of Magdala, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James. And the other women with them also told the apostles.
