Easter is a sacred time of year at Xavier, a time when classes are paused and offices are closed. It is a time of community celebration, a time of family commemoration and a time of personal reflection. As we here at Xavier University celebrate the season, we offer you this video to help you remember the resurrection and find joy in its glory.
When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another,
“Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?”
When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them,
“Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised.”
