Seven Words Selected


WOMAN, WHY WEEPEST THOU? WHOM SEEKEST THOU? – Mary Magdalene, so much like the rest of us, weeping over the failure of a promise, over unanswered prayer, over a lost friend, over the great divide of death. But here was the promise fulfilled, the prayer answered, the Friend recovered. So unbelievable that she mistook the speaker for a gardener, until she heard the soothing pronunciation of her name by the risen Lord. “Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am.” (Isaiah 58:9a)
