Liturgical day: Easter Saturday (Octave of Easter)

Gospel text (Mk 16,9-15): After Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary of Magdala. After Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary of Magdala from whom He had driven out seven demons. She went and reported the news to his followers, who were now mourning and weeping. But when they heard that He lived and had been seen by her, they would not believe it. After this He showed himself in another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country. These men too went back and told the others, but they did not believe them. Later Jesus showed himself to the Eleven while they were at table. He reproached them for their unbelief and stubbornness in refusing to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. Then he told them, «Go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News to all creation».

Today we read a summary of the Resurrection Sunday. The first person who saw Jesus alive was Mary Magdalene. She said it to the Apostles, but they did not believe her ... At the end of the day, the risen Jesus appeared to the Apostles: after wishing them peace, He corrected them for their lack of confidence.

- Magdalene went to the tomb at dawn to take care of the body of the Lord ... and she found He was resurrected! "The early bird gets the prime time...".
