The Resurrection of the Lord
Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to him in Hebrew, "Rabbouni!" Jesus said to her "Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, "I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God."
Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord"; and she told them that he said these things to her. - John 20. 16-18
May the Hope and Joy of Easter remain in your heart and with your family forever.
