I had a dream my life would be... so different from this hell I'm living.

Not many people have seen another Simon Cowell television program, "Britain's Got Talent".  Click here for the link to a performance by 47 year old Susan Boyle.  No one expected her to do much, she certainly didn't have the looks of a pop star, but she knocked the room dead with her performance of "I dreamed a dream".

The Easter Octave means we come back to the empty tomb each day, as if it's that first morning.  In today's Gospel, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary (the first Spice Girls) were not expecting to see anything except the dead Jesus, and we know what happened there.

This is a great lesson.  Life is full of surprises.  Go find one.
