Christos Anesti

Alithos Anesti
(The title is Greek for "Christ is risen" and the above is the response, "He is risen indeed!)

While you are enjoying ham and pineapple stuffing and asparagus and Sister Schubert rolls and deviled eggs and coconut cake and time with your families and the beautiful sun outside, here is one of my favorite passages for you on this Easter Sunday!

10Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

13They asked her, "Woman, why are you crying?"

"They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don't know where they have put him." 14At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.

15"Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?"

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him."

16Jesus said to her, "Mary."

(John 20:10-16)
