Reflection for April 18, Tuesday within the Octave of Easter: John 20:11-18

Gospel: John 20:11-18
Mary Magdalene stayed outside the tomb weeping. And as she wept, she bent over into the tomb and saw two angels in white sitting there one at the head and one at the feet where the Body of Jesus had been. And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? She said to them, “They have taken my Lord, and I don’t know where they laid him. When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus there, but did not know it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for? She thought it was the gardener and said to him,“ Sir, if you carried him away, tell me where you laid him, and I will take him. Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni, which means Teacher. Jesus said to her, “Stop holding on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them,‘I am going to my Father and your Father to my God and your God.’Mary went and announced to the disciples,“I have seen the Lord, and then reported what he had told her.

Reflection:
Do you always recognize the manifestation of Jesus in your life? Certainly in so many ways Jesus always manifest Himself to you in everyday of your life you simply need to carefully discern it to feel His presence.

For example in your desire to follow Him there are times that you get lost and do things as what we want to do it. But somehow Jesus would always find a way to redirect your life to Him. He would straighten you and make you understand that He is there to remind you that you need not lose hope for He’s there for you, you only need to trust Him.

Mary of Magdala was weeping outside the tomb for she did not found Jesus. Perhaps she thought that Jesus’ body was desecrated until Jesus manifested Himself to her. Instantly her feeling of hopelessness was immediately replaced by joyfulness. And then she joyfully went to the disciples and told them that she met and had spoken with Jesus. 

Jesus our Rab-bo'ni (which means Teacher) has already risen therefore He is just around watching over us. Let us always call on His name and let us always ask Him to watch over us and  be with us as we continue our pilgrimage in this world. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
