The Empty Tomb

On the lawn at the back of the Cathedral Social Centre, children from the Cafe Club (parish group for children aged 10-13) have produced a depiction of the Easter scene. A path leads to the empty tomb, where a slab of stone has been removed from the entrance. Three crosses on a hill can be seen at the top of the picture.

Inside the tomb, the grave-clothes are seen folded up, just as the Gospel records. It is wonderful that the younger members of our parish have taken time to visualise the scene and to think about its meaning.
