John 20:1-2, 11-18

Mary’s grief is compounded by her discovery. She remains at the tomb after having alerted Peter and John. Mary’s exchange with the angels inside the tomb is followed by her encounter with Jesus. At first she did not recognize him but he calls her by name and she knows. Mary, the apostle to the apostles returns to share the good news.

I cannot imagine what it must have been like for Mary to realize that it was you. I am aware of your presence often and in so many different ways, but I look forward to the day when I see you face to face.
