Easter Sunday - The unnamed disciple and Peter

Mary Magdalene, after seeing the empty tomb runs to the two disciples: Peter and the other disciple whom Jesus loved.

Easter Sunday - Si Hesus ay nabuhay na muli

Alleluia, Alleluia. Si Hesus ay nabuhay. Sumikat ang Bagong Araw. Hindi sa biyernes Santo nagtapos ang lahat kundi sa Linggo at Pasko ng Pagkabuhay ng ating Panginoong Hesus. Kaya tayong lahat ay nagagalak, umaawit, nagpupuri at sumisigaw, Alleluia, si Hesus ay buhay. Nakita siya ng kanyang mga alagad. Sila Magdalena, Pedro at iba pa. Nakakatuwa na nakakaiyak. Totoo nga ang sabi ni Hesus na siya ay mabubuhay muli at tayo’y kanyang kukupkupin.

Easter Sunday: Ito ang araw

May mga araw sa ating buhay na itinuturing nating pangkaraniwan lamang. Meron namang mga araw na tila ayaw nating dumating dahil sa pangamba o hindi kanais-nais na mangyayari. Subalit mayroong  mga araw na tila kapanapanabik. Isang espesyal na araw, isang araw na batid nating tayo ay magiging masaya.

It is generally said that it is the evangelist, John. In the Gospel of John, this unnamed disciple certainly has a symbolic character and that should be understood.
