Questions for Reflection and Small Group Discussion
Poor Mary Magdalene. On this first day of a new week, her hopes, once high, are now crushed by the death of Jesus...We wonder what she's thinking, and what she expects to find. It seems certain at least that she does not expect an empty tomb. Barbara Brown Taylor explores what's in Mary's heart: "Resurrection [unlike springtime]...is entirely unnatural. When a human being goes into the ground, that is that....You say good-bye....and you go on with your life as best you can, knowing that the only place springtime happens in a cemetery is on the graves, not in them...." Mary is lost, "like an abandoned pup who had lost her master, staying rooted to the last place he had been without the least idea what to do next...."
