The pain of love

The pain of Mary’s sorrow is easily understood, and her eyes were so blurred with tears that she failed to recognise the One she loved so much. As well, though, the Lord had changed. Mary had seen him dead, battered, bruised; now he was transformed. He called her by name and told her to tell others that he had risen. He calls us by name, too, to witness to him by the goodness of our lives.
