St John, Apostle and Evangelist (F)

1 John 1:1-4; Psalm 97:1-2, 5-6, 11-12; John 20:2-8

Risen as he said

Jesus had predicted his resurrection but the disciples didn’t understand what he meant. On Easter day Mary Magdalen, Peter and the Beloved Disciple visited the empty tomb. The Beloved Disciple saw the grave clothes and believed. Later that day, Mary and ten of the Apostles saw their Lord. They then believed he had risen as he had said. What does it mean for me personally when I pray “... on the third day he rose again from the dead”?
