Today’s gospel is the continuation of the gospel heard at the Easter Vigil celebration. It ended with the disciples not understanding why the “Christ had to rise from the dead.” Peter, the Beloved disciple, and Mary Magdalene had to interpret the empty tomb: what did it mean? Today, Mary Magdalene experiences the Risen Christ. She is commissioned to spread the gospel of His resurrection to His disciples. Everything starts with the experience of the Risen Lord. This is how we all come to faith. Then, we need to learn how to follow Him. Finally, we need to learn how to share Him, evangelize Him to the world. We are called to be another Mary Magdalene.
