His last shout from the Cross was a cry of victory: “It is finished!” His human life on earth had run its course and it had proved itself stronger than death. He had been fearless in laying it down for the life of the world. The women who went out to bury him that Easter morning must have known that. What perhaps they failed to fully appreciate was that his victory over death would be crowned by his Resurrection. His death was a stepping stone to the beginning of something new and eternal. We know it as the Resurrection. The Resurrection was, and is, a new beginning. Through our Baptism we are already one with Jesus in that life. Therefore, his risen life is ours also, as is his life for the love of the world.
