Easter Sunday

"Why do you seek the living among the dead? Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise." (Luke 24:5b-7)

 

The events of the first Easter Sunday are represented in this fresco: Christ rises from the dead; the three women come to the tomb early in the morning and find it empty, and the Risen Lord Jesus appears to St Mary Magdalene, and he tells her to give the good news of the Resurrection to his apostles.
