After the earthquake and angelic appearance, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, fearful and overjoyed, run to tell the disciples. Jesus meets them with a greeting of peace and sends them to tell the brothers. (Gospel according to St. Matthew) 

 

Simon Peter and the Beloved Disciple run to the tomb. They peer in and see the burial cloths. The Beloved Disciple sees and believes for they did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead. (Gospel according to St. John)

 

The women are fearful and overjoyed. The men see and believe but do not yet understand. The mixed emotional response is true for all of us. Easter is something we do not fully understand but know in the depth of our hearts. We rejoice in Christ’s victory over death and experience, even now, his resurrection and life. We may not find the right words to explain what is taking place but we can share our Easter peace and joy. “He has been raised. Alleluia!”
