Mary of Magdala who must have been overwhelmed with grief and sorrow and fear and confusion, knowing she couldn’t even roll away the stone covering Jesus, still got up before dawn and went to the tomb. She acted!
Just act. When all is lost, and despair is all around the lesson here seems to be get up and do the next right thing, even if it appears to be beyond your ability to succeed. Mary of Magdala did and what a gift she was given. How incredible it was. The Gospel writers give her story differently yet she became the first evangelist to proclaim the tomb is empty!
This is the Day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad!
A young mother was told her child would be born deformed. She didn’t want to have a hand in taking the life of her child, no matter how painful her pregnancy and birth would be. She just acted like a mother in spite of the warning and threats from the medical personnel. At the time of delivery, her baby lived! Her baby was healthy! A miracle, a mistake, no matter what, she was faithful to her call as a mother. God blessed her greatly.
Just act as the Lord calls you. You don’t have to be anything more than who you are. Act!
Will you act now and consider making an Easter donation to support the moms and children of Good Counsel? Our pregnant mothers and I would certainly appreciate it. And I’m sure Our Lord would, too.
