Resurrection of Christ and Women at the Tomb by Fra Angelico (Public Domain)

After His resurrection He appeared again surrounded with splendor more or less accessible to the senses.  His face, His tone of voice were the same.  he was the Jesus His friends knew before His death.  But His body, now breathed in the region of celestial light which was now in Him, and which will be for those who are crowned with justice, the mantle of immortality.
Our souls will be satisfied only when we see him enveloped in that eternal clarity.  Let us console ourselves while we are eagerly waiting, thinking that Jesus is unchanging, unfailing, eternal light, since He is always the same: yesterday, today, and forever.
In the meantime let us live united to Him, and we shall reflect our light for other souls.
— Venerable Mother Magdalena, CP, Holiness is Love, p. 312
