"After the sabbath, towards dawn on the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary went to visit the sepulchre. And all at once there was a violent earthquake, for the angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. His face was like lightning, his robe white as snow.  The guards were so shaken, so frightened of him, that they were like dead men. But the angel spoke and he said to the women, 'There is no need to be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here, for he has risen, as he said he would.  Come and see the place where lay, then go quickly and tell his disciples, "He has risen from the dead and now he is going before you to Galilee; it is there you will see him". Now I have told  you.'  Filled with awe and great joy the women came quickly away from the tomb and ran to tell the disciples. " (Mt 28:1-8)
