Gospel Of Easter Sunday 03/31/2013

AUTHOR: ANTONI BIGCUORE *DATE: 05/04/13TIME: 11:41 HRS.The Gospel read and meditated on Easter Sunday, the Christian Churches Catholic, was the Gospel of John 20, 19 or Luke 24: 13-35.We read in Matthew 28: "After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. Suddenly there was a great earthquake: the ANGEL OF THE LORD (emphasis mine) descended from heaven and came and removed the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow. 5th. Then the angel said to the women: "Do not be afraid I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here. ROSE, AS WAS SAID! "(1)

In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 16, 1, says: "When the Sabbath came, MARY MAGDALENE, MARY MOTHER OF JAMES AND SALOME, bought spices to anoint the body of Jesus." (2) (emphasis added) 


A.BIGCUORE COMMENT: - The Cross of Christ is truly a paradox. By the logic of the world, that moment of crucifixion, Jesus was a failure, for death on the cross, was constituted in the vilest way that a human being could be killed.

What strikes us is that Jesus was always surrounded by his women disciples. At the foot of the cross, were Mary, his Mother, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. By visiting the tomb also 3 women were present: Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James and Salome. I imagine that the Master had special attention to them, considering that, especially at that time, women were discriminated against by the super macho Jewish society.

The number three was not by chance not. He, in the Bible, is a number symbolic meaning for us Catholic Christians, the Creator Father, the Son Jesus Christ the Word (Word) and Holy Spirit Paraclete, promised his disciples by Jesus himself, at the end of its mission.The angel of the Lord calls to announce such a feat to the other disciples of Jesus. Nevertheless they were very afraid, they ran to announce the fact to the disciples, as the angel recommended them.

The verse to verse 9 "Suddenly Jesus met them and said," Rejoice. " The women approached and knelt before Jesus, embracing his feet. And urged to warn their "brothers" to make inquiries into Galilee, where they could see Jesus.Paul, the great Apostle of Jesus says that He is not risen, your faith is vain!. In fact, Jesus would have been a no, if everything had finished the damn wood!. But where Jesus reveals himself FULLY, is in his resurrection that He conquers death and wins the cross itself. CHRIST IS RISEN, HALLELUJAH!! HE WON AND WINS THE DEATH!He is Emanoel, GOD WITH U.S.! God, since the ancient prophets, is a God who walks with the people. He never abandons his people!

God is faithful!. He is infinitely merciful, always willing to forgive us and give himself for us. Alias ​​is the Holy Eucharist every day, in the tabernacles of the world, he immolates himself and gives himself (albeit not bloody), a sacrifice of praise for our salvation.

In summary: you need to LOVE GOING TO THE MEETING OF GOD! And as it is with God '. In the person of our brothers, Christian or not. Giving them an example of life, of love, of solidarity, of sharing, in everything we do. In visiting the sick. In prayerful reading of His word, the "Academic Divine"; poor and underprivileged in society and, especially, the holy Eucharist.My brother and my sister, that the Risen Christ reign in your heart forever, you make Him your sanctuary alive! Amen.Source: (1) Bible Pauline, pastoral edition, pg. 1279, (2) ditto pg.1.307.(*) Author is a Catholic writer, singer and composer in São Paulo, Brazil.
