Resurrection of Jesus
We read in John 20.1:10 The empty tomb:
It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb. She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. 'They have taken the Lord out of the tomb,' she said, 'and we don't know where they have put him.' So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb. They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in. Simon Peter, following him, also came up, went into the tomb, saw the linen cloths lying on the ground and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed. Till this moment they had still not understood the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. The disciples then went back home.
Therefore, we wish Happy Easter and we share with others our faith.
In Catechism of the Catholic Church, it is written:
Rose from the dead on the third day. Jesus' resurrection is truth highlight of our faith in Christ. It was believed and experienced as the essential truth of the ancient Christians community, it has been handed down as a fundamental tradition, it is based in the New Testament writings, along with the cross, it is essential in the Paschal Mystery.
Christ is risen from the dead. By his death, he overcame death. Those who rest in the tomb, he gave life.
We wish you Happy Easter!
