Help us put our baptism into action.
Sometimes, we hardly believe that tomb is empty.
Sometimes, our grief holds a vigil outside many tombs.
This week we let the reality of the resurrection of Jesus penetrate our hearts.
We died with Jesus in baptism, and we will rise with him in glory.
We can pause throughout our day,
even while moving from one thing to another,
to remember what this day is about.
We may want to renew our Baptismal promises several times this week,
each time using our own words –
making our promises concrete,
as we reflect upon what would put our baptism into action in our lives.
The women were frightened and yet very happy,
as they hurried from the tomb and ran to tell his disciples.
