Mary thought that all she had left to do was to mourn. With energy born of intense love, she got up very early and went to the place where her loved one had been buried.
She was amazed, however, to find the grave open and empty. She ran to tell friends (who came to look, then went home.)
But Mary stayed there, weeping, then, looking into the grave, saw someone who asked her why she was in tears. Then she turned round to see another man, who also questioned her, whom she took to be the attendant gardener.
Until he said ‘Mary.’
