Dec 15 16.3 (After rising on the first day of the week, he appeared to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had expelled seven demons.1 She went and told others as they still mourned and wept, but they disbelieved.) Mary, still weeping outside the tomb, looked inside the tomb and saw two white-robed angels sitting each at the head and feet of where Jesus body had been. They said, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She replied, “Because theyve taken my Lord, and I dont know where he is laid.” Then she turned and saw Jesus standing there, but did not recognize him.

Jesus said, “Why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she replied, “Sir, if youve taken him, tell me where, and I will go fetch him.”

Jesus said, “Mary!” She replied, “Teacher!” He said, “Stop clinging to me, for I must first ascend to my Father.
