Gospel: John 20:11-18
“Woman, why are you weeping?” “Whom do you seek?” (John 20:13)
When Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene, she was crying so deeply, her sorrow and tears blinding her so that she didn’t recognize Jesus standing in front of her. But when He calls her name, she immediately reconizes the familiar voice and she falls to His feet with joy.
Christ is alive! He continues to live in our midst. He calls us by our name, do we hear His familiar voice? Is our vision clouded by doubts, fears, and tears? Do we seek Him at all times, sad and happy times?
Let us be like Mary Magdalene who devotedly sought the Lord. Let us ask Mama Mary’s help for us to persevere until we find and rest in Him.
