Our High Status

        In today's Gospel reading from John 20 at Mass, the resurrected Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene outside the empty tomb. After Mary recognized that it was the Lord, he said to her, "Stop holding on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them, 'I am going to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'" Jesus and we share the same Father and the same God – we should rejoice and never disrespect ourselves again!
