Luke 24:1-12 Reflection – Silence

Luke 24:1-12 Reflection ~

Sabbatum Sanctum:

In the silence of this day my heart is stilled
The man I knew is now divine
He has left this world to rescue those before
In the silence I wait ……. for His return
while old friends go home with Him
In the silence, I pray that all of us
can be with You
in paradise.

Luke 24  New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

The Resurrection of Jesus

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body. While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them. The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.” Then they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb, they told all this to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles. 11 But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. 12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened.

Thank you for meditating on this daily Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Reflection on Luke 24:1-12.
