Sunday Evangelium by Fr Marcus Holden     
"Then we can begin to see not only the resurrection as a fact, as a historical matter, but see the significance of these events, their meaning, what they stand for, for us, and for the world, and for everything. Not just a great miracle, a wonderful bloke coming back to life, not merely a grand proof of all he taught, not only a sign of life beyond the grave, nor just of God's presence amongst us. But what we are talking about here is a new beginning, a new creation, human life transformed, renewed, glorified and communicated to us."

3 2us by Father Tony Nye SJ      
"We are supported by love. That was the key I think to the beloved disciple’s faith in today’s Gospel. He looked into the empty tomb, when he had given way to Peter first. He saw and he believed. He believed because he loved and knew himself to be loved. May each one of us grow a bit more in our faith in the Risen Lord this Easter, in love and in being loved."
