Bringing Forth Life from Death~
Page 2
By Cynthia Reyes
When someone we love dies, our rituals may bring us to visit their graveside. Cleaning, hedging, and placing flowers surrounding their graves may become our link, as an unbroken chain to them. We may sit and converse our concerns,
our joys, and our deep felt absence of them. Intellectually we may come to reason that they are not there, yet something
sacred brings us to their graveside; the yearning, the need to connect, the need to express our love for them that carries us
beyond their grave.
In today’s readings, Mary and the disciples find themselves very much like us; missing Jesus whom they came to
love dearly. Mary of Magdala misses her loving friend and so she gets up early, even before the sun rises as the gospel writer tells us, and finds Jesus’ tomb empty. His body once wrapped in burial cloth was missing. Unlike our experience, she
finds an empty tomb. Her consolation had been stolen and her heart pierced once again of not finding her beloved Jesus.
Mary runs to tell the other disciples that Jesus’ body was not there. Upon hearing the news, the disciples come to see the
empty tomb, becoming witnesses themselves. Its not until they meet the risen Lord, did they remember Jesus’ promise that
he would be raised up after three days. They came to believe as do we.
Easter Sunday is more than celebrating the resurrection of Christ. It’s an invitation to each of us to preach the gospel and take our place in the long line of witnesses to Jesus’ life. This becomes our challenge as witnesses of Jesus as we
are also entrusted with the mission of evangelizing others, passing on the great, wonderful, joyful news of the risen Lord to
all we meet. Easter challenges us to encounter and witness to the divine promise, to bring forth life from death.
Florecerá La Muerte a La Vida~
Por Cynthia Reyes
Cuando un ser querido se nos muera, nuestros rituales pueden traernos a visitar su lapida en el cementerio. La
limpieza de su lapida y la colocación de algunas flores que rodean sus sepulcros pueden convertirse en nuestro enganche,
como una cadena intacta hacia ellos. Podemos sentarnos y conversar nuestras preocupaciones, nuestras alegrías, y nuestra ausencia profunda de no tenerlos cercanos. Podemos razonar intelectualmente que no están allí, pero hay algo sagrado
que nos trae a su sepulcro; el deseo, la necesidad de conectar, la necesidad de expresar nuestro amor para ellos que nos
lleva más allá de su sepulcro.
En las lecturas de hoy, María y los discípulos se encuentran como nosotros; extrañan a Jesús que vinieron a amar
como un ser querido. María de Magdala le falta a su amigo cariñoso y así que ella se levanta temprano, incluso antes de
que el sol se levanta como el escritor del evangelio nos dice, y se encuentra a la tumba de Jesús, vacía. Faltaba su cuerpo
envuelto en tela del entierro. Desemejante de nuestra experiencia, ella encuentra una tumba vacía. Su consolación había
sido robada y su corazón había sido perforado de nuevo de no encontrar a su amigo Jesús. María corre para decir a los de
más discípulos que el cuerpo de Jesús no estaba allí. Al oír las noticias, los discípulos vienen ver la tumba vacía, convirtiéndose como testigos. Hasta que no encuentran al Señor resucitado, recordaban la promesa de Jesús que resucitaría después de tres días. Vinieron a creer a igual como nosotros.
El Domingo de Pascua es más que una celebración de la resurrección de Cristo. Es una invitación a cada uno de
nosotros a predicar el evangelio y tomar nuestro lugar en la larga cadena de testigos de la vida de Jesús. Éste se convierte
en nuestro desafío como los testigos de Jesús, como también el nos confío con la misión de evangelizar a los de mas, pasando las noticias maravillosas, alegres y buenas del Señor resucitado a todos lo que nos encontramos. La Pascua nos
desafía a encontrar y a atestiguar al hecho a la promesa divina de producir vida de la muerte.
