Insuperable. Reflection for marriages. Mark 16, 1-7

Gospel (to be read for Easter Vigil, not before)

Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen!

From the Gospe according to Mark. Mk 16, 1-7.

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”

But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’”

The Gospel of the Lord


Certainly these days we must have experienced the desire to assist Jesus, seeing him vilified, humiliated, and exhausted by the severity of the punishment he received for me. He seems sunk, dejected, bowed, defeated. But the surprise is that he rises powerful, glorious, triumphant. The Father glorifies him, the angels escort him. The surprise is that he continues to pull from me, rescuing me, glorifying me.

Applied to married life:

John: Such is the supernatural power of God that surpasses the limits of our human nature. It surpasses our love, our fragility, our death, our wisdom… Once again, I am amazed by the Greatness of God, also amazed by His Abundant Mercy.

Nuria: He sets the right path for us. Truly, it is necessary to give our lifes away to be glorified with Him. Now I experience an inner joy that overwhelms me. I have no words.

John: I have no words either. Praise be to the Lord.

Nuria: Let the choirs of angels exult.


Glory to God, glory and praises to Him forever. Glory to God.
