Three days later


After the Sabbath, Mary Magdalene and two other women set out at dawn to visit the tomb where Jesus had been laid. As they reached the entrance, they were startled by the dazzling figure of an angel, who said: “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here. He has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”
For Christians, the empty tomb at Easter tells us that Jesus, God’s Son, was crucified but after three days rose from the dead. This is the source of their hope.


Goodness is stronger than evil;
love is stronger than hate;
light is stronger than darkness;
life is stronger than death;
victory is ours through him who loved us.

Desmond Tutu


May the risen Christ walk with you and fill with you with all joy and peace in believing. Amen.
