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

NEXT WEEK (White) Acts 2:42-47; 1 Pt 1:3-9; Jn 20:19-31

Mary went to the tomb “early in the morning while it was still dark.” When she arrived, she saw the stone rolled back and nothing but emptiness, no doubt reinforcing the darkness of sadness and loss in her heart. It would take an encounter with the risen One for her and the other disciples to understand that Jesus had risen. And then their darkness would give way to glory, to light, to Life, to believing. to unmitigated joy. Emptiness would become fullness. He has risen!
