TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni!” (which means Teacher).
Disbelief at finding Jesus’ body missing from his tomb soon becomes unbelievable joy at his having been raised. They should’ve known their teacher wouldn’t stay put for long.
- What traditions will you celebrate today?
- What do they mean for you and your family and friends?
- Wonder: How has Jesus shocked or surprised you? If you need a surprise or miracle, ask God for one. Be open to God’s response.
PRAY: Risen Lord, Good Friday grief has given way to Easter joy! Cheer our hearts with the good news of your resurrection, O Lord, and drive us forth to proclaim it to the world. In your name we pray, Amen.
BLESS: May the God of resurrection bring you new life. Amen.
