Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Susanna are the women of courage who remain at the tomb. Their fidelity is rewarded with the gift of witness. Their witness gives rise to the announcement of the Good News that Jesus is raised from the dead.

Leadership arises from courage. The witness of those women inspires others to believe the truth that God’s love is for everyone.

O gracious God, may I be granted the gift of a courageous spirit. May I give witness to Your Love in all that I say and do.
