Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

Mary of Magdala went and announced to the disciples,

“I have seen the Lord,”

IVe seen the Lord pppas0012

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 20:11-18.

Mary Magdalene stayed outside the tomb weeping. And as she wept, she bent over into the tomb
and saw two angels in white sitting there, one at the head and one at the feet where the body of Jesus had been.
And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken my Lord, and I don’t know where they laid him.”
When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus there, but did not know it was Jesus.
Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” She thought it was the gardener and said to him, “Sir, if you carried him away, tell me where you laid him, and I will take him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni,” which means Teacher.
Jesus said to her, “Stop holding on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am going to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'”
Mary of Magdala went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and what he told her.

Easter Tuesday

The_Risen_Christ_Appearing_to_Mary_Magdalen_WGA

Tuesday in the Octave of Easter

         First Witness to the Resurrection, nowhere in scripture is Mary identified as a public sinner or a prostitute. Instead, all four Gospels show her as the primary witness to the most central events of Christian faith. She traveled with Jesus in the Galilean discipleship and, with Joanna and Susanna, supported Jesus’ mission from her own financial resources (Luke 8:1-3).  
        In the synoptic Gospels, Mary leads the group of women who witness Jesus’ death and burial, the empty tomb, and his Resurrection.  We have Mary of Magdala to thank for having this part of The Gospel record in The Bible. It would not exist without her witness.

Christus resurrexit!- Christ is risen!

Commentary of the day

Saint Ambrose (c.340-397),

Bishop of Milan and Doctor of the Church
Treatise on Virginity 17-21

“Have you seen him whom my heart loves?” (Sg 3,3)

       “Why are you weeping?” You yourself are the cause of your tears, you are the one who makes yourself cry…You cry because you do not believe in Christ: believe and you will see him. Christ is there; he never misses out those who look for him. “Why are you weeping?” Tears don’t serve you any good; you need to have faith, a living faith and worthy of God. Do not think about mortal things and you will stop crying…Why should you be weeping for what makes others rejoice?

 “Whom are you looking for?” Can’t you see that Christ is the strength of God, that Christ is the wisdom of God, that Christ is holiness, Christ is chastity, Christ is purity, Christ was born of a Virgin, Christ comes from the Father and is with the Father and is always in the Father; born and therefore not created, not rejected but always loved, true God from true God? “They have taken away my Lord and I do not know where they laid him” You are mistaken, woman; you think that Christ has been taken away from the tomb by others and you do not believe that he has risen by his own power. But nobody can take away the power of God, nobody takes away the wisdom of God, nobody can take away his venerable chastity. Christ is not taken away from the tomb of the just man nor from the intimacy of the Virgin nor from the secrecy of her faithful soul; and even if there were someone who wanted to take him away, they could not take him away.

     So the Lord tells her: “Mary, look at me”. As long as she does not believe, she is called “woman”; when she begins to turn towards him she is called “Mary”. She receives the same name as the one who gave birth to Christ; for it is the soul that spiritually gives birth to Christ. “Look at me”, he says. Whoever looks at Christ, amends their life; we lose our way when we do not look at Christ. Therefore, as she turns around, she sees him and says: “Rabbouni, which means Teacher”. The one who looks, turns around; the one who turns around, is able better to lay hold; the one who sees, progresses. This is why she calls “Teacher” the one she thought was dead; she found the one she thought was lost.

Saints of the day

Sts. Jonas, Barachisius and Co,

Martyrs (4th century)

Image: N/A

SAINTS JONAS, BARACHISIUS
and their Companions
Martyrs
(4th century)

        King Sapor, of Persia (modern Iran), in the eighteenth year of his reign, raised a bloody persecution against the Christians, and laid waste their churches and monasteries. Jonas and Barachisius, two brothers of the city Beth-Asa, hearing that several Christians lay under sentence of death at Hubaham, went thither to encourage and serve them. Nine of that number received the crown of martyrdom.

        After their execution, Jonas and Barachisius were apprehended for having exhorted them to die. The president entreated the two brothers to obey the king of Persia, and to worship the sun, moon, fire, and water. Their answer was, that it was more reasonable to obey the immortal King of heaven and earth than a mortal prince. Jonas was beaten with knotty clubs and with rods, and next set in a frozen pond, with a cord tied to his foot. Barachisius had two red-hot iron plates and two red-hot hammers applied under each arm, and melted lead dropped into his nostrils and eyes; after which he was carried to prison, and there hung up by one foot. Despite these cruel tortures, the two brothers remained steadfast in the Faith.

        New and more horrible torments were then devised under which at last they yielded up their lives, while their pure souls winged their flight to heaven, there to gain the martyr’s crown, which they had so faithfully won.
