In John's story of the day of resurrection, Mary Magdalene goes to where Jesus was buried and meets someone she first thinks is the cemetery gardener. She realizes the man is Jesus, risen and alive, when he calls her by name. First, though, he asks her two questions: Why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?. Laurence asks those questions in his sermon reflecting on John 20:1-18.
