In your presence is the fullness of joy.

These readings are about transformation. Through the story of the passion and death of Jesus, we have been witnesses to a range of emotions. Now the women, returning from the tomb with fear meet Jesus whose first words are words of transformation: ‘Do not be afraid.’ This same spirit transformed Peter, who had denied Jesus at his trial, to overcome his fear of the authorities before Pentecost. Afterwards, Peter became the great proclaimer of Jesus and his work of redemption and was chosen to be the head of the church. Jesus wants us to hear and be transformed by those words whenever we have fears and doubts, and to allow his Spirit to work in us so we may live in the fullness of joy.
