Easter Sunday

Having found Jesus’ tomb empty on the third day after His death, Mary Magdalene ran to tell Peter and John. They went back with her and saw for themselves that Jesus’ body was not there. After Peter and John went home, Mary stood weeping outside the empty tomb. She looked into the sepulchre and saw two angels in white. Both were sitting where Jesus’ body had lain. The angels asked Mary why she was crying. She said, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him” (John 20:13; see also John 20:10–12).

Mary turned away and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not recognize Him. He asked her why she was crying and whom she was looking for. Mary thought He was the gardener or caretaker and said, “Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away” (John 20:15; see also John 20:14).

Then Jesus said, “Mary.” Mary turned and recognized Him and cried, “Rabboni,” which means Master. (See John 20:16.)

"The Savior's Resurrection assures all of us that someday we, too, will follow Him and experience our own resurrection. What peace, what comfort this great gift is which comes through the loving grace of Jesus Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind."

M. Russell Ballard, The Atonement and the Value of One Soul, Ensign, May 2004, page 84.


In church this morning, your Mom and Dad sang two wonderful Easter songs in the choir: "There is a Green Field Far Away" and "Canon of Praise."
