At the scene of the Resurrection, the radiant angel cried out “Why in the world do you women mingle with your tears?”
On many levels, we can all find much to mingle our tears about. Whether it’s a personal situation, a family situation, certainly larger issues of violence, corruption, and disaster on national and global scales. But our faith must remind us that daily, the angel messenger brings us good news. “Behold, the tomb and understand: the savior is risen from the dead!”
I need to ask myself, where are today’s empty tombs in which I still mingle with my tears? Why do I keep looking in these empty places for help? If I am willing to just stop, stand still and open my heart, maybe I’ll find a radiant angel urging me to open another door – towards our eternally risen help, Jesus.
