What Our Lord Saw from the Tomb

by Fr. Jeff

It must have been quite dark.The sun wasn’t over head yet, and the opening was still barred.

Darkness: It probably doesn’t realize it yet, but the light has already conquered.

Standing in the church two thousand years later, I had to fight a few tears next to the baptismal font. The paschal candle provided the light, and the water provided new life.

Then the stone was rolled away. Now they rise from the water.

You taught me something new. This is

What Our Lord Saw from the Tomb.
