Easter Sunday (April 4, 2010)
John 20:1-9

Where God's Action is Found

Mary of Magdala runs away from the tomb, where God's glorious action has taken place. Thus, like the darkness surrounding her, she has not yet come to believe.

Simon and the other disciple, on the other hand, upon hearing the news, run toward the tomb. They see the evidence of God's action (the burial cloths and the cloth that has covered Jesus' head), and believe.

The tomb, the place of the death, by God's action, has become the place of life and faith.

This passage on Christ's Resurrection in John's gospel invites us to see God's action in our life, especially in times of sufferings and death.

Christ has conquered death. He is alive.
