Video – Fr. Bonaventure – Homily: The Divine Gardener at the Tomb
Loading the player...
Though she loved much and was forgiven much, even Mary Magdalene did not initially believe in the Resurrection of Christ. Her faith was still rooted too much in sentimentality & emotions rather than in conviction. Today's readings tell us that Mary Magdalene believed Our Lord to be the gardener at the tomb, & she was partially right: He Himself promised to reap where He did not sow, through His apostles (as witnessed in the first reading) and through us as well. Let's be nourished by this word from Fr. Bonaventure, and let's take every opportunity to sow good seeds with acts of kindness, patience, generosity, and by receiving the sacraments as often as possible. Happy Easter!
