Gospel Reading: JN 20:11-18

Sir, if you carried him away,
tell me where you laid him,
and I will take him.” (Jn 20:15)

In today’s Gospel we see how Mary Magdalene so loved the Lord that she is willing to look for the dead body of Jesus which seems to have been taken away or stolen. Though for her as a human, all that she could do with a dead body was to give it an honorable resting place, this earnest desire of Mary Magdalene is rewarded with what was the first sighting of the resurrected Jesus or should we say Salvation for the human race.

How often in our lives have we prayed and not seen a response from Jesus to our prayers? Were those not moments for us when Jesus seemed to be like a dead irresponsive God? Yet we returned to Him. We continue and still hope to continue in our faith.

If the love of Mary Magdalene was rewarded in her lifetime itself how much more would you be blessed for believing in Jesus without having seen Him with your own eyes? 

Though separated by 20 centuries from the days of Mary Magdalene, that same resurrected Jesus stands beside you, fulfilling His promise to be with you till the end of the age.

Surely each one of your rewards await you, not just in this life but also in the glorious heavenly life that you are being equipped for.
