Gospel Jn 20:1-9 

On the first day of the week,
Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning,
while it was still dark, 
and saw the stone removed from the tomb. I’m 
So she ran and went to Simon Peter 
and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, 
"The Rabbi has been taken from the tomb, 
and we don't know where they put him."
So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.
They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter 
and arrived at the tomb first; 
he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.


When Simon Peter arrived after him, 
he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, 
and the cloth that had covered his head, 
not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.
Then the other disciple also went in, 
the one who had arrived at the tomb first, 
and he saw and believed.
For they did not yet understand the Scripture 
that he had to rise from the dead.  Then the disciples went back to their homes.


Meanwhile, Mary stood weeping beside the tomb. Even as she wept, she stooped to peer inside, 

and there she saw two angels in dazzling robes. 

One was seated at the head and the other at the foot of the place where Jesus' body had lain.

They asked her, "Why are you weeping?"

She answered them, "because they have taken away my Rabbi, and I don't know where they have put the body."

No sooner had she said this than she turned around and caught sight of Jesus standing there, but she didn't know it was Jesus.

He asked her, “Why are you weeping? For whom are you looking?"

She supposed it was the gardener, so she said, "Please, if you're the one who carried Jesus away, tell me where you’ve laid the body and I will take it away."

Jesus said to her, "Mary!"

She turned to him and said, "Rabboni!" - Which means "Teacher."

Jesus then said, “Don't hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to Abba God.

Rather, go to the sisters and brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Abba and your Abba, my God and your God!’"

Mary of Magdala went to the disciples. "I have seen the teacher!" she announced. Then she reported what Jesus had said to her.


And so ends this Gospel reading today.

 ALL:  We are ever aware of your Spirit in creation. Intensify your Spirit anew in these simple gifts of bread and wine and in us, that we might truly be the Christ presence rising in our world.


Presider:  On the night before he died Jesus sat at supper with his companions. He reminded them of what he taught them and bent down and washed their feet. Jesus returned to his place at the table, lifted the bread and spoke the blessing, and then broke the bread with these words,


All:  "This is my body which will be given for you.  Do this in remembrance of me". 


Presider:  Then taking the cup of wine Jesus gave thanks and said 


All:  Take and drink of the covenant made new again through my life in you.  


Presider: (lift bread and cup) This is Jesus the Christ-our gateway to New Life.


Through the sharing of this bread and wine may we awaken to the sacredness of our lives and the beauty all around us.  May we experience your divine presence, O Creator God, so deeply, that our lives become reflections of Jesus. May we proclaim with our very lives ALL IS ONE! Amen


All:  This is the Body of Christ for the Body of Christ.  (Pass the bread and cup in silence) (EACH PERSON WILL "BREAK" THEIR PIECE FROM THE BREAD)

Gathering and Welcome:

We are so happy you have joined us and we welcome you to share in our eucharistic celebration of Hope as we gather around this zoom table of friendship and unity.

Service of Light

Elena: The Divine Mystery, which is our Lover, the power of the Beloved which rises in every act of love and the Breath of Love which breathes in, with and through and beyond the Cosmos is with you, within you and beyond you.  (Dawn Hutchings)

On this most sacred night, in which Jesus Christ passed over from this earth to a new life, the People of God everywhere come together from all over to watch and pray.

 Like Mary Magdalene and the other women, who came to the tomb weeping and, there, encountered the Risen One's  ongoing presence with them, our tears and longings move us more deeply into union with God and with our sisters and brothers everywhere. 

Blessing of the Fire and Paschal Candle

Elena: We begin our liturgical celebration today by blessing the Easter fire, lighting our Easter Candle and our individual candles – a symbol of the Risen Christ, alive in and around us. Hallelujah!

Elena sets the fire.  When lit, the fire is blessed.

Elena: Let us pray. As we bless this new fire -- and may our paschal celebrations,  be inflamed with new hope.  May our Easter celebration empower us to make possible the impossible. Christ is raised from the dead, and as his sisters and brothers, we are raised with him imbued with Resurrection power.

Deo Gratia, thanks be to God.

This is the time when you light your candles and hold them up so that they maybe symbolically joined to the many candles on this table that represent our loved ones who have transitioned into eternal life and are united with us in a communion of saints.

Michael: Lumen Christi, light of Christ.    (3 Xs)

Michael and All: Deo gratia.  Thanks be to God!  

Easter Proclamation

Michael: At the Easter Vigil, the Church proclaims the Exultet, a glorious hymn of praise, about the Holy One’s compassionate presence in creation, the liberating history of the people of Israel, the story of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.   In the radiant presence of the Risen Christ dwelling within us and present everywhere, we are filled with hope for the transformation of our suffering world in the embrace of infinite love.  May we be filled with joy as we experience a contemporary Easter Proclamation.

The Liturgy of the Word

Lee: First Reading:  A Reading from "Jesus at Easter: Individual Ascension or Universal Resurrection?" 

Every major event in Jesus' life is described in the gospel texts except the Resurrection. there is no description of the actual moment of Jesus' transition from buried death to visionary life. 

To fill in the absence of any gospel description of the Easter moment itself, two divergent theologies and iconographies were developed within Western and Eastern Christianity.

In the Empty Tomb Tradition, female and male disciples discover the vacant tomb on Easter Sunday Morning. This involves one (john 20:1-2,

two (Matt. 28:1, three (Mark 16:1)or more women (Luke 24:10). It also involves men in some competition with one another (Luke 24:12; John 20:3-10).

In the Multiples Appearances Tradition, Jesus appears to and speaks with both female and male disciples... {but} only two named individuals are singled out by themselves as recipients of such apparitions: Mary in John 20:1-18 and Peter in Luke 24:34.

In Western Christianity, the Easter moment was already depicted with Jesus' symbolic body by 400, and by his physical body by 900. From 900-1300, Jesus' physical body was depicted first inside the tomb, then emerging from it (one leg still in, the other already out) and finally hovering outside and above the tomb.

In Eastern Christianity, the Easter moment is radically different. Jesus appears invading hades -As Death's -Prison by trampling underfoot Hades as Death's Warden and liberating- hand to-hand- the whole human race represented by and incarnated in Adam and Eve. Created by 700, this tradition develops and expands across 1300 years but never deviates from the vision of what we should call the Universal Resurrection of Jesus-and-Humanity. Jesus never arises alone in Eastern Christianity. Next, more than that, Jesus raises the whole human race with him. 

In the Easter imagery of Eastern Christianity is that Jesus almost always carries a cross symbolic of his Execution. Eastern iconography holds closely and visually together the individual execution of Jesus and the Universal Resurrection with Jesus. 

When Jesus was executed for nonviolent resistance to violent injustice and carrying the cross of that execution, grasps the hands of Adam- and -Eve , that is , of all humanity and liberates them from death, that images makes this claim and has this meaning: only nonviolent resistance to violence can liberate our species from death, can save humanity from an escalatory violence that leads inevitably to cosmicide. That is the challenge of Christianity's Anastasis to Humanity's Evolution. 

These are the inspired words of John Dominic Crossan and we respond, Thanks be to God.  

Responsorial Psalm: Praising Song with Karen Drucker and MMOJ Community:

We live resurrection power when we empower one another to rise!

Gloria A Joyful Gloria by Linda Lee and Rick Miller

:    Second Reading: A Reading from the Letter to the Romans (6:3-4)

Sisters and Brothers, are you aware that we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were indeed buried with him through Baptism into death, so just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of God, we too live in newness of life. 

These are the inspired words of Paul in the Letter to the Romans and we respond,  Thanks be to God.

Alle, Alle, Alleluia: Linda Lee

Gospel from the apostle John, with commentary from Elizabeth Johnson

Joan P: On the first day of the week, early in the morning, while it was still dark, Mary of Magdala went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed.  So she came running to Simon Peter, and to the other disciples and said to them: “They have taken away the Master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they laid him!” So Peter started off with John the disciple, and they went to the tomb. When Simon Peter entered the tomb, he looked at the linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth which had been on Jesus’ head.  Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first, went inside too, and he saw for himself and believed. For they did not understand the writing which says that Jesus must rise again from the dead. The disciples then returned to their companions.

Dotty:   Meanwhile, Mary was standing close outside the tomb weeping. Still weeping she leaned forward into the tomb. After again seeing the empty tomb, Mary turned around and walked to the garden.  She turned and looked at Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus.  “Why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” he asked. Supposing him to be the gardener, Mary answered: “If it was you sir, who carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away myself.”  “Mary!” said Jesus. She called out and exclaimed in Hebrew: “Rabboni!” (which is to say, “Teacher.”) “Do not touch me,” Jesus said; “for I have not yet ascended to God but go to my brothers and sisters and tell them that I am ascending to my God and their God.” Mary of Magdala went and told the disciples that she had seen the Risen One and that he had said this to her. 

(Excerpts from the Gospel of John)  (Mary’s leadership after the resurrection and ascension) 

Commentary from Elizabeth Johnson

Joan P:  Jesus’ death is a consequence of the hostile responses of religious and civil rulers to the style and content of his ministry; to which he was radically faithful with a freedom that would not quit. But contrary to this judgment of the powerful against him, the resurrection discloses that in and through and beyond his death, God’s loving power and wisdom are winning. Despite all appearances to the contrary, it turns out that God did not abandon Jesus on the cross after all. Rather, when human beings had done their worst and there was no future left for this victim of unjust state punishment, then the vivifying Spirit of God quickened him to life. Instead of dying into nothingness, Jesus dies in the living mystery of God. 

Dotty:    The resurrection of Jesus did not end the suffering of the world. Crosses keep on being set up throughout history, and agony perdures. But Christ crucified and risen discloses the truth that divine justice continuously leavens the world and does so in a way different from the techniques of dominating violence. The victory is won not by the sword of a warrior god but by the power of compassionate love that brings the living God into solidarity with those who suffer in order to heal and set free. 

Jesus’ resurrection is the beginning of the resurrection of all the dead.  It inserts that future as a reality already here in the struggling world. Just as the living mystery of God enveloped Jesus at the end of the darkness of death, we too can trust that God will have the last word in our lives as indeed God had the first, and it is the same word: Let there be life. 

Excerpts from Abounding in Kindness by  Elizabeth A. Johnson. (pp. 192-194)

Homily Starter – Bridget Mary Meehan

Just as the living mystery of God enveloped Jesus at the end of the darkness of death, we too can trust that God will have the last word in our lives and it will be as indeed God had the first, and it is the same word: Let there be life. “ (E. Johnson)

In the New York Times bestselling book: Evidence of the AfterLife, radiation oncologist and near-death experience (NDE) expert Dr. Jeffrey Long gathered findings from the Near- Death Experience Research Foundation that pointed toward a strong scientific case that there is life after death. He shares testimonials from near- death experiencers who meet God, venture into heavenly realms, reunite with deceased loved ones and meet spiritual beings before returning to our world to report their journey. 

In one of these stories that give us a glimpse of life after death, we meet Nan who should have died from the overdose of medication that she took. Her consciousness traveled out the top of her head. Guided by two beings, she zoomed toward a pinpoint of light hat became larger and larger: “As I got close to the Light, I saw tens of thousands of beings dressed in white gowns all facing the Light and singing music I had never heard the likes of before… The Light was filled with the most extraordinary, overwhelming, and indescribable feeling of Love. (p. 146.)

Like Nan and the The message of the angel to Mary Magdalene and the women at the tomb 

“Do not be afraid. Go tell everyone that Christ is Risen” we are filled with joy in the Presence of new life beyond our imagination.

“It is not insignificant that it took a woman who first loved Jesus personally to build the bridge from Jesus to Christ,” Richard Rohr writes, “Mary Magdalene serves as a witness to personal love and intimacy, which for most people is the best and easiest start on the path toward universal love. Then, in the garden, she experienced a sudden shift of recognition toward the universal Presence or Christ. He, in fact, is the gardener! He has become every man and every woman. She was not mistaken at all when she “supposed he was the gardener.” (John 20:15) The Risen Christ surpasses the bounds of time and space, ethnicity, class, gender and nationality. If God is God, then the Divine Presence must necessarily be everywhere and universally accessible.” (The Universal Christ, pp. 193-194) This means that the Risen Christ is in you and in me and in all of us, rising up to new life everyday.

According to Acts 1:22, the definition of an apostle is a “witness to the resurrection.” Mary Magdalene was the first witness to encounter the Risen Christ. She was the first apostle. In all four Gospels, It was Mary and the other women who in spite of possible danger courageously ventured into the darkness to meet the Risen One. 

In an article entitled “Mary the Tower: What would Christianity be like if Mary Magdalene hadn't been hidden from view?” Rev. Diana Butler Bass asks: "What kind of Christianity would we have if the faith hadn’t only been based upon, "Peter, you are the Rock and upon this Rock I will build my church"? But what if we’d always known, “Mary, you are the Tower, and by this Tower we shall all stand?” (see blog article by Diana Butler Bass that explains the correct translation of Magdalene not as a place, but as a title: Tower. 

This makes me wonder if instead of being a Church that emphasized rigid adherence to man-made doctrines and canon laws, we focused more on following the way of Jesus, would our history have been different? Certainly, patriarchy would not have dominated our lives for centuries and women and men and all genders would be equal partners in all ministries in the Church!

In early Eastern Christianity, the Resurrection is depicted as a communal event. The imagery shows the Risen Christ leading Adam and Eve, and the people in the Hebrew Bible out of Hades into paradise. This reflects a deep belief that the Resurrection of Christ includes all humanity, all creation throughout time. In the Divine Mystery of Love, we are all one- connected to those who have gone before us, to those who are living now and to all life in the universe- women and men rich and poor- everyone!

As Pastor Dawn Hutchings said in one of her Easter homilies, “LOVE rises over and over and over again. LOVE, the LOVE that IS the MYSTERY we call GOD, rises in, with, through, and beyond us, now and forever! LOVE IS Risen! LOVE IS Risen in us! Alleluia!”

When we care for one another, comfort those in distress, give generously to those in need, work for peace and justice, and do good deeds, 

the Holy One lives and breathes in us, heals and loves through us and beyond us so that together we may raise one another up.  We are part of the Divine Dance of Love, in which Christ rises again and again with us, within us and through us. We live resurrection power when we empower one another to rise!

Let us rejoice that everyday is Easter! 

Happy Easter!
