My name

Jesus said to her, “Mary.” (John 20:16a)

I am always enchanted with the the story of Mary at Jesus’ tomb, Mary, who was looking for the Lord, and He wanted her to recognise Him as living.

And what if I were at her place? If I had gone to Jesus’ tomb  and hadn’t found Him there? If I’d been told that I sought him in vain among the dead, that he’d risen?

Mary recognised the risen Lord when He called her by name, even though she didn’t see Him yet. She believed when she heard His voice.

And how many times Jesus called me by name?

The first time – when I was baptised; at every Eucharist; every day when He comes to me with His word.

Jesus, let me always see You with the eyes of faith, when You call me by name which you’ve always known.
