The Lord is Risen!
When Mary Magdalene comes to Jesus' tomb on the first Easter Sunday she comes for the same reason anyone might visit the grave site of a loved one: to mourn. But instead of finding a sealed tomb she notices, first, that the stone has been rolled away and, secondly, that the body of Jesus is missing. Either someone has stolen the body of Christ or Mary is about to be the first to experience a wonderful event – an event of eternal significance. Come celebrate the resurrection of our Lord with us!
