New Life in the Resurrection! Happy Easter!

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark,
 Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone
 had been removed from the entrance

Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. 
As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb  and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.
 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”  
At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
 He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
Thinking he was the gardener,
 she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, 
and I will get him.”
 Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).
 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. 
Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 
‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!”

Wishing you  a Happy Holy Easter!
