“When Simon Peter arrived after him,
he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there,
and the cloth that had covered his head,
not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.”
Recall Peter’s denying even knowing Jesus last week. Might that not have added to his confusion and fear at this time?
See Jesus’ Passion and Death as integral to this Easter event.
How can these events affect your faith when your life follows a similar path of suffering followed by the surprise of something you didn’t expect?
Heritage word—“We cannot have Jesus
or the Resurrection
minus the Cross.”
(Sr. Mary Sujita, 9th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
