John 20:15b Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.
Around this time every year, a website usually runs an article attempting to explain away the radical proclamation of Easter. After all, we know how the world is supposed to work. Jesus defies expectations then and now, thanks be to God. Let us, like Mary, see and believe the Good News. We see Jesus in the church, in the sacraments, and in his followers. Death is vanquished. “I have seen the Lord.”
