In the darkness of Good Friday, we rise with Mary Magdelene and walk to the tomb where the Lord was placed.
What do we find?
He is not there?
Mary's reaction is surprising, and it helps us to connect with the mixture of emotions that we hold on Resurrection Sunday.
He is risen, but there is still darkness in our world, in our lives.
We will experience this morning with Mary, as she dares to allow hope to rise.
