Encountering the Risen Lord

He saw and believed.

Three Points of the Homily:
1. Empty Tomb as proof of His Resurrection

There are four evidences that points that Jesus has truly risen: a) His dead body could not be found; b) the linen cloth and the carefully folded napkin; c) the stone moved away; d) Jesus appeared to more than 500 people in a span of 40 days.

2. We need to encounter the Risen Lord.

Mary Magdalene encountered Jesus and became the first evangelist.

3. Our mandate is to proclaim the good news to others about the Risen Lord.

"The Lord is alive and wants to be sought among the living. After having found him, each person is sent out by him to announce the Easter message, to awaken and resurrect hope in hearts burdened by sadness, in those who struggle to find meaning in life. This is so necessary today..." - Pope Francis
