Commentary on the Gospel of Easter Sunday 2021

What makes the apostle John run to the tomb? He lived for the whole drama of Easter, being very close to his master. There seems therefore inadmissible statement like: "They did not yet understand the scripture". Yet it was just so: do not be surprised then to see the ignorance existing, in many ways similar. God's world, God's plans are so different that still happens that even those closest to God does not understand and be surprised of events.
"He saw and believed". Enough an empty tomb because everything is resolved? I think it was not so easy. Even in the moment of suffering the hardest, John remains close to his master. The reason does not include, but love helps the heart to open up and see. It is the intuition of love that allows John to see and believe before all other. The joy of Easter mature only on the ground of a faithful love. A friendship that nothing and no one could break. Is it possible? I believe that life has taught us that only God can get us what. It is the testimony that give us all the gulag of Eastern Europe and which echoes in the joy of Easter to the end of our millennium.
