The Resurrection of the LordMarch 27, 2016
MARY & PETER
This homily includes a reflection by Leanna Cappiello, since after all, it is women who are there at the empty tomb. Over the past year, I have learned a great deal about the feminine genius, and if there was ever a time to give voice to that, it seems like the Resurrection is that moment.
After all, there is a question inherit in the Gospel that I would like to hear the answer to – one I cannot answer on my own – what was it like for the women at the tomb?
So enjoy this perspective of Mary and Peter – two people in love with Jesus who model for us, even to this day, what it means to give witness to the risen Lord.
May the Lord bless you this Easter season, Alleluia, Alleluia!
