MARY  (the mother of James)








NARRATOR: Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome were watching from far away the place where Jesus was buried.



MARY MAGDALENE: Let´s go home.  The Sabbath is about to start, and besides the road is not safe at night.



SALOME: Yes, it´s true.  Anyway we already know where He is.



MARY: Meanwhile, let´s prepare the sweet spices and ointments to anoint Jesus´s body tomorrow morning.



NARRATOR: The three women walk together and they say.



MARY MAGDALENE: It´s so sad and painful.  Nevertheless I feel peace in my heart.



MARY: That´s right.  But I think that something important is about to happen.  Now we should prepare everything. Do you have everything we need?.



MARY MAGDALENE: Yes, I already have the balsam and aloes.



SALOME:  And I have the cinnamon, myrrh, and mint.



MARY:  What about the cassia and saffron?.



SALOME:  I´ll get them, don´t worry. Now, we have to rest.



NARRATOR:  Next day, very early in the morning they came to the grave site and brought the spices they had prepared.  Then Mary Magdalene asked.



MARY MAGDALENE: Who will move the huge stone for us?.



MARY: I know, it´s very heavy!.



SALOME: And we are not strong enough.



NARRATOR: But when they arrived at the tomb, to their astonishment, the huge stone had already been moved.



MARY MAGDALENE: Look!. Someone moved the stone!.



MARY: It´s impossible!.



SALOME: How could they?.



NARRATOR: They enter the sepulchre, and Jesus´body was not there.



MARY MAGDALENE, MARY AND SALOME: It´s empty!.  Where have they taken him?.



NARRADOR: They started to cry, and suddenly they saw an angel who asked them.



ANGEL: Why are you crying?.



MARY MAGDALENE: Because someone has moved Jesus’ body, and we don’t know where it is!.



ANGEL: I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.



MARY MAGDALENE, MARY, AND SALOME: Glory to God!.  He has risen!.  The tomb is empty.  Everybody listen, Christ has risen.  We have seen his empty tomb. He has risen!.
