A quote from Pope Francis:
“Now that, like the two ladies, we’ve visited the tomb, I ask you to return with them to the metropolis. Let us all retrace our steps and alter the look on our faces. Let us return with them to inform the information In all these locations the place the grave appears to have the remaining phrase, the place demise appears the solely manner out. Let us return to proclaim, to share, to disclose that it’s true: the Lord is alive! He resides and he needs to rise once more in all these faces which have buried hope, buried goals, buried dignity. If we can’t let the Spirit lead us on this highway, then we aren’t Christians.
Let us go, then. Let us enable ourselves to be shocked by this new daybreak and by the newness that Christ alone can provide. May we enable His tenderness and His like to information our steps. May we enable the beating of His coronary heart to quicken our faintness of coronary heart.”
