The Empty Grave

April 1, 2018

Many people enjoy visiting the graves of famous people,

from Abraham Lincoln in Springfield, IL

to St. Peter in the Vatican. We feel a sense of peace and finality around graves. But the one thing we would never expect in a cemetery is action. Yet that

s precisely what we find at the center of Christianity, as St. John recounts in today

s Easter Gospel.
