Rolling Back the Stone

At tonight's anticipated Vigil Mass, the Gospel was about Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead when he'd already been in the tomb four days. Martha warns Him "already there is a stench." I started thinking tonight that perhaps those words do more than serve to illustrate the seemingly impossible - raising a corpse from the dead. Perhaps they are also meant to reassure us that no matter how badly we've allowed our souls to decay, anything is possible through the mercy of God. Jesus will go wherever we are to find us and call us into the light, even in the most unthinkable places.
