“What a joy it is to announce this message: Christ is risen! "
“We too, like the women who were Jesus’ disciples, who went to the tomb and found it empty, may wonder what this event means (cf. Lk 24:4). What does it mean that Jesus is risen? It means that the love of God is stronger than evil and death itself; it means that the love of God can transform our lives and let those desert places in our hearts bloom. God's love can do this.” ~Pope Francis, Easter 2013
How great that Mary Magdalene was the first to announce that message to the apostles! I love that! At a time when a women's testimony wouldn't hold up in a court of law, Jesus trusts the greatest news of all time to a woman! Beautiful!
Happy Easter my friends!
