  • "They took therefore the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths, with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. Now there was in the place where he was crucified, a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein no man yet had been laid. There, therefore, because of the parasceve (day of preparation for the sabbath) of the Jews, they laid Jesus, because the sepulchre was nigh at hand." -John 19:40-42

  • "And the next day, which followed the day of preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate, Saying: Sir, we have remembered, that that seducer said, while he was yet alive: After three days I will rise again. Command therefore the sepulchre to be guarded until the third day: lest perhaps his disciples come and steal him away, and say to the people: He is risen from the dead; and the last error shall be worse than the first. Pilate saith to them: You have a guard; go, guard it as you know."
  • "And they departing, made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting guards." -Matthew 27:62-66

  • "And behold there was a great earthquake. For an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and coming, rolled back the stone, and sat upon it. And his countenance was as lightning, and his raiment as snow. And for fear of him, the guards were struck with terror, and became as dead men.
  • And the angel answering, said to the women: Fear not you; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
  • He is not here, for he is risen, as he said. Come, and see the place where the Lord was laid. And going quickly, tell ye his disciples that he is risen: and behold he will go before you into Galilee; there you shall see him. Lo, I have foretold it to you. And they went out quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy, running to tell his disciples. And behold Jesus met them, saying: All hail. But they came up and took hold of his feet, and adored him." -Matthew 28:2-9

  • "Mary Magdalen cometh early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre; and she saw the stone taken away from the sepulchre. She ran, therefore, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and saith to them: They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went out, and that other disciple, and they came to the sepulchre. And they both ran together, and that other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And when he stooped down, he saw the linen cloths lying; but yet he went not in.
  • Then cometh Simon Peter, following him, and went into the sepulchre, and saw the linen cloths lying, And the napkin that had been about his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but apart, wrapped up into one place. Then that other disciple also went in, who came first to the sepulchre: and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. The disciples therefore departed again to their home.
  • But Mary stood at the sepulchre without, weeping. Now as she was weeping, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And she saw two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been laid. They say to her: Woman, why weepest thou? She saith to them: Because they have taken away my Lord; and I know not where they have laid him. When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing; and she knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith to her: Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, thinking it was the gardener, saith to him: Sir, if thou hast taken him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
  • Jesus saith to her: Mary. She turning, saith to him: Rabboni (which is to say, Master). Jesus saith to her: Do not touch me, for I am not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brethren, and say to them: I ascend to my Father and to your Father, to my God and your God. Mary Magdalen cometh, and telleth the disciples: I have seen the Lord, and these things he said to me." -John 20:1-18

  • "And they hearing that he was alive, and had been seen by her, did not believe." -Mark 16:11

  • "And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, they come to the sepulchre, the sun being now risen. And they said one to another: Who shall roll us back the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And looking, they saw the stone rolled back. For it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed with a white robe: and they were astonished.
  • Who saith to them: Be not affrighted; you seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: he is risen, he is not here, behold the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee; there you shall see him, as he told you." -Mark 16:2-7

Through Jesus Resurrection
We Are United In Faith

"Confirming the souls of the disciples,
and exhorting them to continue in the faith:
and that through many tribulations we must enter
into the kingdom of God."
-Acts Of Apostles 14:21

Catholic Rosary Myteries

Faith is the fruit of this mystery, Jesus Resurrection. It is fitting because Jesus gave many proofs of His resurrection so that your faith would be firm in the foundation of this dogma, the Resurrection.

Faith is not an easy thing to understand. A good place to start developing this virtue is by imitating the lives of other holy people.

You don't have to look far to find the perfect example of true faith, the mother of Jesus and your mother too, Mary.

Great things were accomplished in Mary because she believed and had faith in the Lord.

She believed she would be a mother even though she had no husband.

She believed she would be the Mother of God.

She accepted God's will without any hesitation.

If you have complete confidence in God, He will work wonders in your life. Happiness and being at peace are a state of mind, not a state of being.

That is the secret the Saints have learned.

That is how Mary lived her life.

She didn't know how things were going to work out but her faith in Jesus was all she needed and her humility stopped her from trying to understand everything.

She just accepted all on faith.

There are many Marian devotionals. To find one that interests you please visit our Catholic Rosary Shop.

And you will be on your way to finding more peace and serenity by learning how to follow Mary's examples and in particular her confident faith in God.

The Bible passages used for Jesus Resurrection were taken from the timeless Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible.

If you are looking for a more modern language version of Jesus Resurrection, our recommendation would be the St. Ignatius Press Bible.
