Sequentia Sancti Evangelii secundum Marcum – Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to St. Mark
Mark 16 : 1-7
In illo tempore : Maria Magdalene et Maria Jacobi et Salome emerunt aromata, ut venientes ungerent Jesum. Et valde mane una sabbatorum, veniunt ad monumentum, orto jam sole. Et dicebant ad invicem : Quis revolvet nobis lapidem ab ostio monumenti?
Et respicientes viderunt revolutum lapidem. Erat quippe magnus valde. Et introeuntes in monumentum viderunt juvenem sedentem in dextris, coopertum stola candida, et obstupuerunt. Qui dicit illis : Nolite expavescere : Jesum quaeritis Nazarenum, crucifixum : surrexit, non est hic, ecce locus, ubi posuerunt eum. Sed ite, dicite discipulis Ejus et Petro, quia praecedit vos in Galilaeam : ibi eum videbitis, sicut dixit vobis.
At that time, Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of James, and Salome brought sweet spices, that they might come to anoint Jesus. And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, they came to the sepulchre, the sun having now risen, and they said to one another, “Who shall roll back the stone from the door of the sepulchre?”
And looking, they saw the stone rolled back, for it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed with a white robe, and they were astonished, who said to them, “Do not be afraid, you who seek Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified. He has risen, He is not here. Behold the place where they laid Him, but go, tell His disciples and Peter that He went before you into Galilee, and there you shall see Him, as He told you.”
