Easter Sunday

The Resurrection of the Lord

March 31, 2013

Easter

TODAY (White) Acts 10:34a, 37-43; Col 3:1-4; Jn 20:1-9

NEXT WEEK (White) Acts 5:12-16; Rev 1:9-11a, 12-13, 17-19; Jn 20:19-31

Mary arose “early in the morning” to go to Jesus’ tomb. Early morning speaks to us of the freshness of new life. By contrast, this gospel uses the word “tomb” seven times, speaking to about the seeming finality of Jesus’ death. By even greater contrast, the gospel ends with the Scripture certitude that Jesus “had to rise from the dead.” Death is overcome. Death has no victory. God is the Lord of life. Easter celebrates a new beginning, our certitude of new life. May we choose that life.
