For the Son of Man was raised up
so that everyone who believes in Jesus
may have eternal life.

Look on Jesus, lifted up,
lifted high to redeem the world.

Gospel Reading - Revelation to Mary

thumb

11And by that time Mary had returned to the tomb and was standing outside crying. And as she wept, she stooped and looked in 12and saw two white-robed angels sitting at the head and foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying.

13“Why are you crying?” the angels asked her.

“Because they have taken away my Lord,” she replied, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”

14She glanced over her shoulder and saw someone standing behind her. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him!

15“Why are you crying?” he asked her. “Whom are you looking for?”

She thought he was the gardener. “Sir,” she said, “if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him.”

16“Mary!” Jesus said. She turned toward him.

“Master!” she exclaimed.

17“Don’t touch me,” he cautioned, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them that I ascend to my Father and your Father, my God and your God.”

18Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, “I have seen the Lord!” Then she gave them his message.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
     hallowed be your name,
     your kingdom come,
     your will be done,
          on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
     as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
     and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
     now and for ever.
Amen.
