‘Do not be afraid - go and tell the brothers.’

Typically, with sensitivity and affection, the women came to tend the body of the Lord. But he was not there. He had risen. It was awesome but so joyful. They would go to tell the disciples. The news would ring around: ‘Christ is risen!’

But there, coming to meet them, was Jesus. They clasped his feet in adoration and love. He had two familiar messages for them: ‘Do not be afraid’ and ‘Go and tell the brothers.’ And so, facing an apathetic and often hostile world, we place our confidence and trust in the Lord and confide in and serve one another.
