Rejoice! Be Not Afraid.

"One of the cornerstone messages of the Gospel is the preaching of joy. Having met the myrrh-bearing women after the resurrection, the Lord says to them: Rejoice!  And now, on the path toward His suffering on the Cross, He gives His disciples a foretaste of the future of the time of the resurrection."
