Easter Sunday - The Resurrection of Our Lord

Posted on 21st April, 2019

 

Gospel John 20:1-9

 

The Empty TombIt was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb. She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved. ‘They have taken the Lord out of the tomb’ she said ‘and we don’t know where they have put him.’ So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb. They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in. Simon Peter who was following now came up, went right into the tomb, saw the linen cloths on the ground, and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed. Till this moment they had failed to understand the teaching of scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

 

 

Alleluia! The Lord has truly risen! Wishing all our friends and followers a very happy and blessed Easter, filled with the grace and joy of the Holy Spirit!

 

"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us be glad and rejoice in  it!"

(Psalm 118:24)
