Easter Joy ....


 

What was going through the minds of Peter and John as they ran to the tomb, Peter slower than John?  The pain of the last few days was bad enough without the body of Jesus having been taken from the tomb!  If Jesus is not there they have nothing left except the knowledge that they failed him.  When he needed them they ran away.  Instead of faith they had fear.  At least in a tomb he should have been safe.  How can he not be there?


Peter went in first and saw the linen cloths that had wrapped the body of Jesus.  He also saw the cloth that had covered his face and head, but strangely this had been folded and placed aside.  John, following Peter, saw, understood immediately, and believed.  Even though they did not know where Jesus was they knew that he has risen.  They were the first to experience Easter Joy - the joy of the Resurrection.


The Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Jesus won for us eternal life.  Today we believe because we know; we know because, by the Grace of God, we have been given the gift of Faith; the gift of Faith helps us to understand what others cannot believe, know or understand what others cannot believe, know or understand.  Let us be thankful and let s be joyful. 








 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
