Benedict XVI explains Easter season

2010-04-07

The resurrection is the greatest of God’s mighty acts in history;mysterious beyond all imagining, it is also a real event attested by trustworthywitnesses who in turn became messengers of this Good News before the world. Inevery generation, the Gospel of Christ, crucified and risen, must constantly beproclaimed anew. Each of us, as a disciple of Christ, is called to testify tothe reality and power of the new life bestowed by the Risen Lord upon those whobelieve. Saint Mark, at the end of his Gospel, tells us that the Lord "workedwith" the Apostles, and "confirmed the message by the signs whichaccompanied it" (Mk 16:20). Today too, the Risen Christ wishes towork with us, so that we may reflect his words in our words and reveal the powerof his love by our actions. During this Easter season, may our personalencounter with the Lord deepen our faith, hope and love, and inspire us toproclaim, with our lips and in our lives, the Good News that "Christ istruly risen!".I offer a warm welcome to the newly-ordained deacons from the PontificalIrish College, together with their families and friends. Dear young deacons: maythe grace of your ordination conform you ever more fully to the Lord in humbleobedience and faithful service to the building up of the Church in your belovedhomeland. Upon all the English-speaking visitors present at today’s Audience,especially those from England, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden, Malta, Croatia,Australia, Japan and the United States, I invoke the joy and peace of the RisenChrist!
