From the darkness of Good Friday Jesus takes His mother to the joy and exultation of His resurrection through the Father. I guess she was the first, who experienced Jesus as the risen one.
Her strong faith gives her the certainty God's power is stronger than death.
"Mystery of faith, in death there is life". (GL,210)
Hand in hand they praise and glorify the Father.
Mary, you woman of the Easter light, together with you, we believe in the resurrection of your son.
Jesus Christ gives us life in fullness, already in the here and now - for all eternity.
I am the
and the life.
The one who believes in me
even though they die.
And whoever lives
by believing in me,
will never die. (John 11:25f)
