That’s the mercy of Jesus, the most innocent of all, who suffered,
who did the heavy lifting for us, that we might be spared.

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t still some work left for us to do.

It’s not too late to do what Mary of Magdala did
when she found that the heavy work had been done for her -
she went home to tell her friends.

If, this Easter, we realize what Jesus has done for us,
then ours is the work of sharing news of that with others,
with whomever we might meet later today.

Sharing our faith in Jesus might seem to many of us
to be very hard work - but it needn’t be.
Some folks might rather try to move the stone away from the tomb
than have to talk to others about their faith.
