"In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, 'Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!'"
The remaining eleven disciples had trouble accepting the words of the women who had been greeted by angels and witnessed the empty tomb. They were blinded by their grief. Maybe it seemed too good to be true. Some doubt-ridden days it still does. Our celebrations at Easter time and throughout the year remind us that this is not just a flannel-graph story; it is the actual account of Christ’s resurrection and the basis for our salvation: “Christ is risen, He is risen, indeed!”
Simply receive and give thanks for this truth: The risen Christ rejoices over you today with a risen, salvation love!
