Gospel: Matthew 28:8-15
We made it through Lent. Christ has risen. But, what’s next?
“Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
After this encounter with the Risen Christ, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were going back to Galilee. Not only with knowledge, but with a concrete plan – to go and tell the Good News to the people: Jesus is meeting them.
Lent was a journey of going within ourselves, and this season of Easter, we are invited to go and step out like these women--to be sharers of Christ’s resurrection bringing His presence, hope, and love to our brothers and sisters.
Does your life reflect the hope of the Risen Christ? How can you share God’s love to someone today?
Lord, may my life be a testimony of hope that your resurrection brings. #VDDailyGuidelines
