More thoughts for meditation

On this resurrection Sunday let’s celebrate by following the women. That morning they came together for a common purpose. They rose early to go to the body. They made their way, spices in hand, heavy with all that they had witnessed and experienced, for one last touch to anoint him.

Follow the women. They took action to move towards Jesus even when their hopes were crushed. With so many unanswered questions, they went. And through their action they found a boulder moved, an empty tomb and an angel with a message.

Follow the women. They remembered and they shared the story. They had walked with Jesus. They had the memory of his words in their hearts. They had love for him in their bones. They remembered who he was and they believed. They ran to share the news, to tell the others. He had not left them. He had risen!

Suggestions for action

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Celebrate Christ’s resurrection today by following the women. Gather with others, take action to move toward Jesus and remember your own story.

Together we pray, “Resurrection is here. We see your life in our life.”
