The complete joy of Easter actually was known not at the discovery of the Empty Tomb, but in the first witnessing of the risen Christ. The empty tomb was filled with light and the angel who announced that the anticipated joy of the disciples would be fulfilled when they would again see Him. However the empty tomb did not have a body in it, there was nothing there to decay. The light foretold that Jesus would be seen again. This Easter we are invited to fill our hearts with the presence of the risen Lord. As he was witnessed by his followers, He still longs to be present in our midst. Our souls, like the tomb have now been emptied of any sin and decay, and have been filled with the uncreated light as they were at our baptism. May our Paschal greeting of “Christ is Risen, Indeed He is Risen!” not be hollow words, but be spoken by Christ who has now filled our hearts with His divine life. Blessed Feast of Feasts! Christ is Risen, Indeed He is Risen!
