Ran to announce the news

April 6, 2015 6:10 am

“Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce the news to his disciples.” (MT 28: 8)

“Fearful yet overjoyed” the women “went away quickly from the tomb.” The same thing happened to the shepherds, when an Angel proclaimed to them the Good News about Jesus, who was just born—“they went with haste.” We have the Good News to announce all over the world: death is defeated, the darkness lightened and weakness strengthened with the power of Our Lord, who is risen.

“This is the day the LORD has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
