Monday within the Octave of Easter

Matthew 28:1-15

To return to Galilee means to re-read everything on the basis of the cross and its victory, Jesus’ preaching, his miracles, the excitement and the defections, even the betrayal – to re-read everything starting from the end, which is a new beginning. What is my Galilee? Where is my Galilee? Do I remember it? Have I forgotten it? Have I gone off on roads and paths which made me forget it? Lord, help me: tell me what my Galilee is; for you know that I want to return there to encounter you and to let myself be embraced by your mercy.
