Here is St. Matthew’s account of that first Easter morning when God filled the earth with hope, joy and love.
The Angel said to the women,
“Do not be Afraid
for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.
He is not here; He has risen just as he said.”
Filled with awe and great joy, the women came quickly away
from the tomb and ran to tell his disciples.
Two thousand years later, may we, too, experience the same great joy and awe that the women at the empty tomb did. May the miracle of his Resurrection live in our hearts forever.
