The Women Who Waited

This Sunday we commemorate the Myrrh-bearing Women. These were the women who in their unwavering devotion and love for the Lord went early in the morning on the third day to anoint His body in the tomb while the Apostles hid themselves away. Like the wise virgins in the parable of the ten virgins (Mt 25: 1-13) we read during Holy Week, these women brought oil with them, and in turn they became the lamps that light the way for the Bridegroom, Christ, by proclaiming His Resurrection to the Apostles. But why were these women given the honor of becoming the first witness to the Resurrection? Who were these women? Quite simply, these were the women who tended to Jesus all His life; they spent their time, energy, and means to support Christ in His ministry because they loved Him. For them, coming to anoint His body in His tomb was an extension of everything they had done for Him so far. And to show His love for them, Christ allowed these women, including His mother, to be the first to know that He was, in fact, not dead, but resurrected, granting them, and all of us, Eternal Life.

Anne Seabright

 

“You seek Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen!” In the midst of sadness, the good news comes to us and tells us of the life in Christ. To share this life with vigor, Christ seeks men and women to be like the angel who shared this good news to the myrrh-bearing women. He may be calling you to do this by a life as a monk, a nun, or to holy orders. Contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email: vocations@ephx.org
