April 6, 2015 (Matthew 28:8-15)

“Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed.” Jesus’ resurrection should cause us great joy! There are those, just like the chief priests and elders, who refuse to believe and actually ridicule it. (Just watch TV or read the stories on the internet.) We may be “fearful”, too, but like the women we need to be overjoyed and shout the fact of Jesus’ resurrection from the house tops! Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again. The reality of the resurrection is a challenge and demands a bold response from each and every one of us. We need God’s grace to evangelize with joy and fearlessness.
