Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 20:1-9.

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.
So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him.”
So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.
They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first;
he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.
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.
Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed.
For they did not yet understand the scripture that he had to rise from the dead.

Commentary of the day

Saint Epiphanius of Salamis (?-403),

Bishop
Homily 3 for the Resurrection

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad” (Ps 117,24)

     The Sun of Justice (Mal 3,20) that had disappeared for three days, today rises and shines on the whole creation. Christ was in the tomb for three days but he existed before the ages! He comes up like a vine and fills the earth with joy. Let us behold the rising sun that will never set; let us anticipate the day and be filled with the joy of this light!

The gates of Hell have been broken by Christ, the dead awake from sleep. Christ rises, he, the resurrection of the dead, and comes to awaken Adam. Christ, the resurrection of all who have died, rises and comes to free Eve from malediction. Christ rises, he who is the resurrection, and he transforms in all its beauty what had “no stately bearing to make us look at him” (Is 53,2). As a sleeper the Lord awoke and confounded all the deceitfulness of the enemy. He was raised and gave joy to the whole creation; he was raised and the prisonhouse of Hell was emptied; he was raised and transformed what is corruptible into incorruptibility (1 Cor 15,53). The risen Christ clothed Adam with incorruptibility, his original dignity.

Today, through Christ, the Church becomes a new heaven (Rev 21,1), a more beautiful vault to contemplate than the visible sun. The sun that we see every day cannot compare with this Sun: as a servant filled with respect, it eclipsed before him, when it saw him hanging on the cross (Mt 27,45). It is of this Sun that the prophet said: “For you who fear my name, there will arise the Sun of Justice with its healing rays” (Mal 3,20)…Through him, Christ, the Sun of Justice, the Church becomes a beautiful heaven filled with a multitude of stars that emerge from the baptismal waters in their new light. “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad” (Ps 117,24), filled with the joy that comes from God.

Saint of the day

St. John of Egypt (+ 394)

San_Giovanni

SAINT JOHN OF EGYPT
(+ 394)

        Till he was twenty-five, John worked as a carpenter with his father. Then feeling a call from God, he left the world and committed himself to a holy solitary in the desert. His master tried his spirit by many unreasonable commands, bidding him roll the hard rocks, tend dead trees, and the like. John obeyed in all things with the simplicity of a child.

After a careful training of sixteen years he withdrew to the top of a steep cliff to think only of God and his soul. The more he knew of himself, the more he distrusted himself. For the last fifty years, therefore, he never saw women, and seldom men. The result of this vigilance and purity was threefold: a holy joy and cheerfulness which consoled all who conversed with him; perfect obedience to superiors; and, in return for this, authority over creatures, whom he had forsaken for the Creator.  

        St. Augustine tells us of his appearing in a vision to a holy woman, whose sight he had restored, to avoid seeing her face to face. Devils assailed him continually, but John never ceased his prayer.

        From his long communings with God, he turned to men with gifts of healing and prophecy. Twice each week he spoke through a window with those who came to him, blessing oil for their sick and predicting things to come. A deacon came to him in disguise, and he reverently kissed his hand. To the Emperor Theodosius he foretold his future victories and the time of his death.

        The three last days of his life John gave wholly to God: on the third he was found on his knees as if in prayer, bud his soul was with the blessed. He died in 394.
