Official Message from His Eminence for Easter

April 13, 2017

Easter is the Feast of the triumph of good over evil, of light over darkness, of justice over injustice: of God over Satan. In the world of today we see so much of senseless hatred and violence: with some acts of incomprehensible cruelty. 'We proclaim your Death, O Lord,and profess your Resurrection,until you come again,' is what we all acclaim after the Consecration at Mass. The Resurrection is the core event of our faith. We are an Easter people. We can never lose hope. Our faith is in the Risen Lord. I send each one of you very warm and affectionate greetings for Easter Sunday. These greetings go out particularly to the aged, those sick, the lonely, those in distress and those in any way affl icted. The Lord is truly Risen! Alleluia! The Lord loves you, Alleluia! A Happy Easter!
