Scripture of the Day

The Gospel according to John, chapter twenty, verses eleven thru eighteen.

Commentary: I receive in my e-mailbox a daily Gospel reflection from Bishop Barron's Word on Fire Ministries, just as during Lent, but so far this is only available as an e-mail, not through a freestanding website; so, I am uncertain how to share the reflection with you, my treasured readers, but I'll keep working at it.
