They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
Gospel's Commentary
Today those women have found the empty grave. Jesus is not there: He is risen! They run to tell the Apostles. On their way Jesus Christ appears before them. They have no doubt: and they kiss Jesus’ feet. Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, the high priests of the temple are spreading the false rumor that Jesus is not risen, but His body, that was in the grave, has been stolen... – Jesus, I believe that you live and that you love me. I want--along with the saintly women – to kiss your feet.
