Jesus Christ is Risen 2024

Mt 28:1-7, Ravenna, Sant’Apollinare nuovo (493-526)

“Mary came to the tomb. She came to the womb of the resurrection, she came to the birth of life, so that Christ might again be born to faith from the tomb, as he had been born from a womb of flesh […] The angel descended and rolled the stone… not to offer a passage to the Lord who was coming forth, but to show the world that the Lord had already risen. Let the angel descend and testify that Christ is risen also from our souls.” (Peter Chrysologus).
