At this point we will join
the very first recipients of the Easter news:
the women who, early on the first Easter Sunday morning,
went over to the tomb of Jesus to wash his body.
Try to recreate the scene in your mind,
exerting a special effort to see and feel
what these first messengers of the Resurretion
see and feel.
Play this instrumental music
to guide your reading and prayer.
Stay with the scene while the music continues,
savoring what you saw and what you felt
as you were contemplating this scene.
