In John 20:13-15 (NRSV), the same question is repeated twice. The angels ask Mary, “Woman, why are you weeping?” (verse 13). And then Jesus asks Mary, “Woman, why are you weeping?” (verse 15).
On Easter Sunday, perhaps it’s still the question before us: “Why are we weeping?” Why is there still such anguish in the world? Why are we laboring on, burdened and living as though there has been no resurrection?
Weep no more! Christ has risen!
