Each year, as we hear the story of Easter Day, there’s some detail or piece of the account that seems to stand out. This year, for me, it’s what Jesus says to Mary of Madgela, the First Apostle, when she encounters him in the garden at the first light of day.
Jesus is recasting his relationship to her, to the other apostles and to each of us in that moment before he ascends to his Father. We are now siblings of the risen Christ.
May this year’s Easter Season be a blessing to you and those around you. May God bless us all as this time of separation begins to draw to a close and a time of restoration and reconnection begins.
