FAITH BOOK

EASTER SUNDAY (B) April 1, 2018

Acts 10: 34a, 37-43; Psalm 118; 1 Corinthians 5: 6b-8; John 20: 1-9

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections 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:

 

On 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 the tomb.

 

Reflection:

 

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 inside?

  • Do I believe that Christ is alive and with me as I peer into the empty tomb?
