Dear Friends: alleluia, Christ is risen. He is risen indeed, alleluia!
When Mary Magdalene goes to the garden, she sets in motion the Easter gospel as she finds the tomb open and empty. A new day has dawned, God has broken the powers of death and hell and has given us the victory. Though fear, cruelty, power and violence had their way with Jesus, as they continue to have their way with too many in our world, death has no more the final word, Christ has burst from the tomb. Mary Magdalene stays at the empty tomb, grieving and crying and meets a man whom she thinks to be the gardener until he speaks. She hears her name, recognises her teacher and believes: ‘Go, dearest Mary, go and tell them all the good news, death has no hold, – I Jesus, am returning to my Father and your Father, my God and your God,’
The same command applies to us, too! Let us go, Easter people, let us go and let us tell them all the good news, death as no hold! Our Lord promises, ‘Whoever is in me, and I in them, is a new creation.’
With love and prayers
