EASTER OF THE RESURRECTION • “Let us go back to proclaim, to share, to reveal that it is true: the Lord is alive!” With these words, Pope Francis urged those who attended the Easter Vigil not to remain closed in the tomb, but to resurrect like Jesus, and he warned that if we are not able to do this, we “are not Christians.” He encouraged everyone to be “driven to keep walking and not resign ourselves to the fact that things have to end this way.” This is the EasterRead More
