Gospel: (Mark 16:1-8)

When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of
James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint Jesus.
And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they
went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away
the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they
saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. As
they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting
on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be
alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has
been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. But go, tell
his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will
see him, just as he told you.” So they went out and fled from the tomb, for
terror and amazement had seized them; and they said nothing to anyone, for
they were afraid.
