How can I make a difference in a broken world?


Stained Glass Cross

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION - MARK 16:1-8

The earliest of all accounts of the empty tomb lies here. It is a very modest account. There are no angels. There is no earthquake. There is no picture of Jesus being transformed from a corpse to a "spiritual body".

The response of the women is fear, trembling, and stone cold silence. And yet something happened to change those terrified women into the first proclaimers of the Risen Lord. What happened was that he came to those terrified and silent women, calming their fears and injecting steel into their spines.

This transforming power comes to us through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit in turn comes to us through prayer, Scripture, Sacrament, and the fellowship of the church as it seeks to do the will of its Master.
