It is very early, near daybreak. Mary Magdalen arrives at the Tomb of our LORD. Her Beloved. Her Redeemer. The Son of God. The Paschal Lamb who suffered and died for our salvation. Mary discovers the Tomb empty. She fears the worst. Her grieving heart, mind and soul are in disbelief.

"He is no longer there!" "Where Have They Taken My Lord?" "Please someone tell me, have you seen who has taken away my Lord?" ******************************* She is panicked stricken and confused.

Fifty years of deceit and denial of the Truth. So I ask ..... "Where have they taken my Lord?"
