Woman, why are you weeping?

These come later. I like the idea of Mary as the first disciple in John's account of the Empty Tomb in chapter 20. But, these images are really about longing. Missing something. Weeping for something that doesn't really have a name. Faith isn't always that easy. To know the dead are in Heaven. To know that resurrection of all souls will reunite us. Sometimes, there is just longing.
