Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” So, Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally, the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) Then the disciples went back to where they were staying. Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?” “They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (Which means “Teacher”). Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’ ” Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

JOHN 20, 1-18 (NIV)


In the heart of darkness, on the edge of hope, the story of Mary Magdalene and the empty tomb is, for me, a confirmation that after the night, day always comes. Sometimes, ensnared in the web of problems, we do not always let in the truth that fortune turns like a wheel, and bad events sooner or later dissolve in the flood of subsequent, better moments. Unless, like a hamster trapped in a wheel of sin, we keep running in circles. Then, the good moments, well, they may not come as quickly as we would like. In the first rays of biblical dawn, when Mary of Magdala went to the tomb, she discovered something that forever changed the course of history – an empty tomb. It was not the end, but the beginning – a promise that life with Jesus always triumphs over death and light over darkness.
