Social Justice & Advocacy Column April 11
“I have seen the Lord.”
Mary Magdalene’s sermon is mine, too. The simplest sermon. The only sermon. Nothing more is needed. Except one thing — that the “I” becomes “we.”
Hers became the proclamation of those frightened, fearful followers, the ones who learned from Mary how to preach the resurrected life: We have seen the Lord.
Listen. Turn around. Look. Look again.
Have you seen the Lord?
Tell me. Tell me your story. Have you seen him? Where? Tell me!
And let us proclaim together: We have seen the Lord.
