The day started off with people in dispare, sad, lonely.
We have all lost someone close to us.
Echoes of the days before. Good Friday, death was the victor.
The women were met with an invitation instead, "Come see the place where the Lord lay."
Death needs to be rationalized by coincidence, luck, it needs an answer.
The tomb was vacated, never to be filled again. The stone was rolled away so we could see inside. Jesus dies in our place, not in service to us, but in our place. He went into the tomb and now it is empty. He is risen! Jesus call Mary by name, "Mary." The world around her changed.
