Easter Sunday — Defeat in Detail?

By Catholic Scout

And so they came to the tomb very early on the day after the Sabbath, at sunrise. And they began to question among themselves, Who is to roll the stone away for us from the door of the tomb?
Then they looked up, and saw that the stone, great as it was, had been rolled away already. And they went into the tomb, and saw there, on the right, a young man seated, wearing a white robe; and they were dismayed.
But he said to them, No need to be dismayed; you have come to look for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified; he has risen again, he is not here. Here is the place where they laid him. Go and tell Peter and the rest of his disciples that he is going before you into Galilee. There you shall see him, as he promised you.

As He promised you. He did not fail.
[3] Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
[4] Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land. 
[5] Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
[6] Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill. 
[7] Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 
[8] Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.
[9] Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God. 
[10] Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
[11] Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake: 
[12] Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven.

The Promises of this Man, are not for this earthly realm, but an eternal one. He will not fail those who are faithful to His Way.
