Easter Sunday 2021


They went to the tomb
“They have taken the Lord away from the tomb, and we do not know where they have put him!”
Peter then went out with the other disciple and went to the tomb. They both ran together, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down, saw the cloths lying there, but did not enter. Simon Peter, who was following him, also came and entered the tomb and saw the cloths lying there, and the shroud – which had been on his head – not lying there with the cloths, but rolled out in a place by itself.
Then the other disciple, who had come to the tomb first, went in; he saw and he believed.

We see and believe
Let us also run to contemplate the love that is stronger than death. Let us also bend down with John to see the sheets on the ground, those sheets that had wrapped a corpse. Let us also enter the tomb and see, with Peter, that it is empty. With the two apostles, we too see and believe. And we proclaim that Jesus, that Jesus who was crucified, is now alive and triumphs over death. Death, for today and for every day, has no more power over him.

  Christ our Passover      
has risen from the dead
and with him
the womb of death
has been emptied
and we are free.
For today
and for every day
of this new day
eternal day of your Easter,
blessed be Father
through Jesus your Son
in the Holy Spirit.
