Today is the feast of the Great Martyr St. George the second patron of England (more of that soon).  Albeit dearly beloved by the English, we know precious little about him. That first historian of the Church after St. Luke, Eusebius of Caesarea, tells us in 322 AD that St. George was a soldier of noble birth, put to death by Diocletian at Nicomedia on 23 April, 303.  However there are few details in his account and although understood to be St. George, Eusebius does not give us his name.

This martyr saint was a tribune in the Roman army and beheaded by that great persecutor of the Christian Church, Emperor Diocletian. …

In the opening verses from Chapter 20 of the Gospel of St. John, Mary Magdalene has come to the tomb of Jesus Christ and found the tomb empty, so she went to Peter and John and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.” I find that what was true for Mary Magdalene is sometimes true for me: I know that Jesus Christ has died and is no longer buried, but where is He? Where is He now in the life of Mary Magdalene, and in my life and in your life?

When the Myrrh-bearing Women came to the tomb on the morning of Pascha with spices to complete the embalming process they had no reason to expect anything unusual.  They were simply conforming to the burial customs of the time.  Jesus whilst alive had taught that the fall of the Temple in Jerusalem would be followed by a raising up 3 days hence but at that time Christ’s followers had not really understood that he was referring to the temple of his own body. 

Imagine therefore the shock when the women got to the tomb and found it empty.  They might have concluded that someone had stolen or simply removed the body;…

Christ performed many miracles; He healed many people, from various diseases and from demonic attack. He even raised the dead. It is recorded in today’s Gospel (John 5:1f) that He healed a man in Jerusalem of infirmity. The man had been hoping to be the first person into the water and to be healed, but he was unable to get into the pool as he had no friends to help him. It is interesting that just after that passage we are told that “because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute Him”. There was clearly no doubt in their minds of the efficacy of the healings of Christ. However if the efficacy…
