Gospel - John 20:1-10
Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.” Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went toward the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down to look in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not
go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb.
He saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place
by itself. Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that He must rise from the dead. Then the disciples returned to their homes.

25 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” (John 3:17)
We thank God for bringing us to a place where we have never been
before in our whole lives: to today, to this week, to this month, to
Easter 2021. What a milestone!
At Easter we celebrate the fact that Jesus rose from the dead. It is a
season which signifies not only resurrection, but new life, hope, and
Things are different now than they were last Easter:
Last year this time we were in the midst of the first, big COVID-19
lockdown. This year we are not in lockdown.
Last year COVID-19 was a relatively new phenomenon and there was great fear and uncertainty about that unknown. This year we are in a more comfortable space where we know a lot more about the virus, and we have protocols and procedures in place to manage it safely.
Last year we had no vaccine available. This year we have the new hope
of several available vaccines. Millions of persons have been vaccinated already.
I am sure that you can think of ways that your life is better or renewed since last Easter, and ways in which you have new hope. I am also
certain that you can think of ways in which you are less fortunate or worse off than you were last year. But, the thing is that we must all try
to press on, whatever our circumstances.
