a) Introduction – Angels appear to the women

On Sunday, very early in the morning, while it is still dark, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary come to the garden where Jesus was buried. Near the tomb they are suddenly frightened by a great earthquake. Here an angel of the Lord appears to them. They see him descend from heaven, come and roll back the large stone from the door of the tomb and sit on it. Perplexed, the women look at the angel’s face. His countenance is like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow shining in the sun. Even the soldiers guarding Jesus’ tomb are witnesses of this glaring appearance. But now they are lying on the ground like dead men, shaking for fear of the angel’s presence. Likewise the women are frightened, yet they look at the angel with hope.

Now the angel says to them: “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said.” (Mt 28:5-7)
