Acts 2:36-41; Psalm 33; John 20:11-18

Do not cling to me

Mary wants to hold on to him; she loves him so much and will do all she can to never lose him again. Jesus invites her to the more generous reality. Actually, to know beyond all other knowing, that all is gift. We don’t orchestrate or manufacture grace, it is never our doing or of our making. Isn’t it true that often, in the intensity of pain, with all of the distortions that pain brings, and not really appreciating this season, that sensing a sliver of love focuses our seeing more deeply again? These days of resurrection are given to us and help us to live more and more into this mystery. Cling if you must, then let go and see more deeply than ever.
