AT DAWN on Easter Sunday Jesus rose by His divine power. He surely appeared to His Mother first. He had received from her the body that was now so glorious. Since she shared in all His sufferings, it was right that she should share in the joy and glory of His victory.
The Risen Jesus prepared His Mother for her part as Mother of the Church which He founded.
