John 20: 1-9

on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on
the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted
in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.
From today’s Gospel reading:
the first day of the week,
Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning,
While it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from
What and where are the empty tombs for us? Relationships
that have died, or dried up; pursuits and ambitions that
have proven vain and wasted; misplaced confidences in
what was shallow and fruitless; nostalgic attempts to
re-create the warm and good feelings we had when we were
children coming to church on Easter Sunday?
So, we ask ourselves:
Does the empty tomb remind us of the
places and situations in our lives which
have proved lifeless and left us empty
Do I believe that Christ is alive and
with me as I peer into the empty tomb?
