Watch: Bishop Boyea & Seven Words of the Risen Lord: Day 1: “Mary” (John 20:16)

The Bible records 10 occasions when Jesus Christ appeared to his disciples after the Resurrection. But what relevance are each of these divine encounters to us in our daily lives?

Well, during this Holy Easter Season, Bishop Earl Boyea of Lansing invites you to join him for some brief reflections on the significance of Seven Words of the Risen Lord.

"May they help to open our hearts, so that burning within us, they will welcome the Lord of Glory," says Bishop Boyea.

Today, Bishop Boyea begins his meditations with Christ's encounter with Mary Magdalene (John 20:11-18). We hope you find these meditations useful in growing closer to the Risen Lord each and everyday of this Eastertide.
