Easter Monday


A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer

Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

Jerome Nadal: Christ Appears to the Women
Adnotationes et Meditationes in Evangelia, 1595


Monday in the Octave of Easter:                           Christ Appears to the Women

Readings for Mass

First Reading: Acts 2:14, 22-32
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 9-10, 11
Gospel: Matthew 28:8-15


Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me                     (NRSV, Mt 28:10).”

Let us pray.

 

Father, your apostle Paul teaches us that an apostle is one who has seen the risen Lord and is then sent to bring the good news to others. Paul understood himself as the least but also the last of the apostles, one born out of undue time.

In Matthew’s gospel, then, the first of the apostles are the two Maries, the holy women who went to anoint the body of Christ, who encountered Jesus in his risen body and were told to bring the good news of his resurrection to the others.

Father, as you bless the holy women who were the first to be sent, bless us also who have received the good news of Jesus’ resurrection in our time that we also may be effective instruments of your grace to all of our sisters and brothers.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen
