The Virgin was absolutely sure that Jesus would resurrect from the dead

The Virgin was absolutely sure that Jesus would resurrect from the dead, since he had openly predicted it. What she did not know was the hour of the Resurrection, which in fact is mentioned nowhere. However, in Psalm 56, David, speaking in the person of the Father addressing the Son, said: “Awake, my glory, awake my harp and my lyre!” And the Son answered: “I will awake at dawn …” After the Virgin Mary realized the time of the Resurrection, she wanted to find out if other prophets had mentioned the day of the Resurrection, and she found this text in chapter 6 of Hosea: “After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up and we will live in his presence.”
Jesus with His Mother
The Virgin stood up and said, “These witnesses to the time when my Son will resurrect from the dead are enough for me”…. And immediately Christ sent the angel Gabriel to her saying, “You who told my mother about the Incarnation of the Word, go announce to her his Resurrection.” Immediately, the Angel flew to the Virgin and said, “Queen of Heaven, rejoice, because the one you deserved to carry in your womb is risen, as he said.” And Christ greeted his mother, saying, “Peace be with you.”

Let’s pray together 

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death.
Amen.
