Happy Easter!

In the Orsay Museum in Paris, there’s a smallish painting by Eugène Burnand that really stands out for me. It’s Les Disciples Pierre et Jean courant au sépulcre le matin de la Résurrection (The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Tomb On The Morning of the Resurrection).

I love the look of hope, and maybe a tiny bit of worry, on the faces of the apostles.

So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. – John 20:4
