Christ ascended and took His blood within the vail and placed it on the throne of God the very day He arose.
His words to Mary demonstrate it.
In the grey dawn of the resurrection morning when she came to the tomb, her face still wet with continual weeping, and found the sepulchre empty and the body gone, it came upon her like a shock that some ruthless enemy had entered the sacred place and taken away the body of her Lord.
She saw one whom she supposed to be the rich man’s gardner. He turned to her and said, ‘Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou”?’
She said, ‘Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.’
O wondrous Mary, what love was thine, precious that crucified body to them.
Then this seeming gardner said just one world: ‘Mary.’
O the music of it.
Suppose your beloved dead (more beloved now they are dead than ever you dreamed) should suddenly appear to you and speak your name?
Do you think there is any music on earth would be like that to you?
Thanks be to God this is the music that shall sound in our ears on the morning of the First Resurrection when He shall come to take us up together and o ur names shall be uttered on lips long since held closed under the seal of death.
And mark how she answered:
‘Rabboni; which is to say, Master.’
All He put into that word, ‘Mary,’ she put back into that word, ‘Master.’
All the love that said, ‘Mary,’ from His lips, from her lips replied in ‘Master.’
But she said more than just ‘Master.’
‘Rabboni’ is a noun, in the possessive it means: ‘My Master.’
Just as David said, ‘My shepherd.’
With that same intense accent of personal appropriation she said, ‘My Master.’
In that supreme moment she forgot everybody, everything else but Him and herself.
