A Word of Scripture
This is a cause of great joy for you, even though you may for a short time have to bear being plagued by all sorts of trials;
so that, when Jesus Christ is revealed,
your faith will have been tested and proved like gold – only it is more precious than gold, which is corruptible even though it bears testing by fire – and then you will have praise and glory and honour.
You did not see him, yet you love him;
and still without seeing him, you are already filled with a joy so glorious that it cannot be described, because you believe; and you are sure of the end to which your faith looks forward, that is, the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:6-9
A Thought for Today
We should reflect on Mary’s attitude and the great love she felt for Christ; for though the disciples had left the tomb, she remained.
She was still seeking the one she had not found, and while she sought she wept; burning with the fire of love, she longed for him who she thought had been taken away.
And so it happened that the woman who stayed behind to seek Christ was the only one to see him.
Pope St Gregory the Great
(c.540 – 604)
