Easter Sunday

The first reading has Peter saying, “We are witnesses!”  Are we witnesses too? How about when it is inconvenient? How often do we refuse to be a witness because of embarrassing circumstances? Are we willing to witness to our faith or do we back down in the face of confrontation or ridicule?
Paul invites us, “let us celebrate the feast, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” Do we truly witness and celebrate the truth? Have we transformed our lives during our Lenten experience to better live the life of Christ?
In the Gospel we have Mary from Magdala telling others about Jesus and the empty tomb. They didn’t believe her and wanted to see for themselves. How do you think she felt, when fellow disciples of Jesus didn’t believe her? How do we feel when we share the faith and others disbelieve or scoff at us?
