My Gospel Reflections for April 7 Holy Saturday, Mark 16:1-7


My Reflections:
All along Mary Magdalene, Mary, the mother of James, and Salome thought that Jesus has not yet risen from His death. That is why they went to His tomb to honor His body by anointing it but He was not there already for He has risen. 

In His being powerless, in His momentary death there were still true and faithful followers who stayed with Jesus. We admire their loyalty to Jesus, we admire their faith in Jesus and we admire them for they never betrayed Jesus until the very end.

I’m sure that the risen Jesus had something as a reward for Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome. For they proved that their faith in Him goes beyond the miracles and healings that they’ve witnessed.

How is your faith in the risen Jesus? is it limited to the miracles that He has done in your life? Or it goes beyond miracles that it goes deeper and it will remain until the very end of your mortal life.
