Here is part of today’s Gospel, from St John: ‘But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb; and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” Saying this, she turned round and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom do you seek?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher)’.

The Lord often passes amongst us, unrecognised. Only when He speaks to us through Scripture or in the depths of our heart, do we sometimes see Him for who He is. In can be a worthwhile exercise at the end of the day to look back and see how Jesus has been there, and whether we recognised Him. He is always there. May God bless you this day.
