Gospel: Jn 20:1-9
Let Christ be Resurrected in Our Hearts
Mary Magdalene ran and went to Peter and other disciples and said to them “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him”. Then Peter and the others set out and went toward the tomb. When they saw that Jesus was not there then they believed in the scripture that Jesus must rise from the dead.
Pope Francis said, “We proclaim the resurrection of Christ” and “When His light illuminates the dark moments of our existence and we are able to share it with others”. Our mission doesn’t only stop on the celebration of the resurrection but we are called to proclaim the resurrection of Christ to others. We are blessed to have in our hearts and celebrate the essence and meaning of the resurrection of Christ in our hearts, for Jesus conquered everything and brings glory to our lives. The call for us is to proclaim the resurrection of Christ to the world and let Christ be resurrected in the hearts of each and every one of us.
