Holy Saturday / Easter Vigil Reflection

April 19, 2014

Matthew 28:1-10

“Do not be afraid.” These are the angel’s words to Mary Magdalene and the other Mary as he greets them at the tomb of Christ. Did you catch what happened just prior to this greeting? “There was a great earthquake” as the angel descended, his appearance was “like lightening,” and “the guards were shaken with fear of him and became like dead men.” And of course, the Lord is missing from the tomb. Do not be afraid? Those circumstances certainly seem to warrant fear.

“Do not be afraid.” These are also the Lord’s words to the women just moments later as he greets them along the road. Important enough words that Christ comes to speak them directly. Not empty words, but words rooted in a deep truth—rooted in the Truth. They proclaim the victory over sin and death that we have in Christ. He has risen. He has won. We need not be afraid.

Sometimes our circumstances seem to warrant fear. It can well up within us in the face of uncertainty, illness, danger, or hurt. Like an earthquake, fear shakes us up and disorients us. But the Lord meets each one of us on the way and speaks truth. He says to us, “Do not be afraid.”

  • What circumstances in your own life seem to stir up fear? Take some time today to bring your concerns before the Lord.
  • Hear him speak to you, “Do not be afraid.” How can you receive these words this Easter season? Let the truth of Christ’s victory sink in. We need not be afraid.

It’s not going to happen in the United States where the dogma teaches that co-ed dormitories and homes are healthy and good for young adults, even if the practice correlates positively with a skyrocketing increase in more virulent, sexually transmitted diseases. According to the Associated Press, Turkey’s prime […]
