“Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away 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."
How focused are we on Jesus in our lives on a day to day basis? It’s seems as though even Mary was focused on the empty tomb and not on the Risen Lord. She was easily distracted from Jesus by simply not focusing upon Him. Yet she realized it was Him as soon as she spoke His name, her eyes were open. Do we go through our life the same way? Not seeing when it is Jesus right there in front of us? Not hearing when it is Jesus that is speaking to us? Are we that disconnected from Jesus?
And His Most Blessed Mother,
