Jesus met them on their way and greeted them

Christ our Lord and Savior, we praise you for all that you have done for us, especially for not leaving us alone in our darkest and lonely moments of our life. Thank you for reaching out to us and meeting us where we are, spiritually, emotionally, psychologically. May your presence in all the Sacraments of the Church strengthen us in our journey of faith. May we, like Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, joyfully announce the Good News of your resurrection to all nations. We ask you this, Lord Jesus, for you are God, in communion with the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
