Please read Matthew 28:1-8. In the "story that never grows old," a familiar refrain occurs in all three of the Synoptic (Matthew, Mark, Luke) accounts. What a joyous anthem it provides for us to raise today! "He is not here ... He is risen." The narrative is so familiar, yet so precious. That evening, after sunset, the women who had witnessed Jesus' death and burial bought spices and aromatic oils to anoint the body of the Lord the next morning. Very early, the women went to the tomb.
