Today’s Reflection: Easter Sunday
We have here an eyewitness account. John wants us to know that he sees the burial cloths, folded up neatly. To arrange them neatly suggests something quite different from possible grave robbers or acts of Jesus’ enemies. These verses are precious evidence that something extraordinary has happened. John understands that death does not triumph where God is present. Jesus has left death behind, folded up and laid neatly on a shelf.
What failings have I left behind during Lent, so as to better celebrate the Resurrection?
