…Mary stood outside the tomb crying.  As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.
They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
"They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don’t know where they have put him."  At this she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
"Woman," he said, "why are you crying?  Who is it you’re looking for?"
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary.”
She turned to him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher).
Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father.  Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!”  And she told them that he had said these things to her.
—John 20:11-18

"He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled.  Then he said to them, ‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.  Stay here and keep watch with me.’
Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.  Yet not as I will, but as you will.’”
—Matthew 26:37-39

Easter

Last year at this time, my dashboard was fairly flooded with posts that disparaged Christianity. None of it amused me. One brings no honor to her religion when she dishonors another’s religion.

So this year I’ll post three panels of Easter spam so as to honor my Christian friends’ faith. I know that I’m fighting a hateful tide with a teaspoon. I won’t win any prizes. I’ll just sleep better.

Tombstone by
Crowded House





Look at all the plans I made
Falling down like scraps of paper.
I will leave them where they lie to remind me.
From the past a rumour comes—
Don’t let it keep draggin’ you down.
Throw the memory in an open fire and
You’ll be free.

Roll back the tombstone,
Let the saints appear,
Roll back the tombstone,
And make a new man out of me.

Beware the passenger.
The train already left the station,
We are neither at home nor at work;
We are moving.
Listen to the howling of steel,
A face betraying no emotion.
Like you never had a chance to be
Wild and free.

Roll back the tombstone,
Let the saints appear,
Roll back the tombstone,
Till the Lone Ranger rides again—
Rides again in your mind.

Ride across the open plain
All the way and back again.
