"Jesus is risen...

"...and he gives us peace; he himself is peace.

"For this reason the Church repeats insistently:
'Christ is risen - Christós anésti.'

"Let the people of the third millennium
not be afraid to open their hearts to him.

"His Gospel totally quenches
the thirst for peace and happiness
that is found in every human heart.

"Christ is now alive and he walks with us.
What an immense mystery of love!
Christus resurrexit,
quia Deus caritas est!

Pope Benedict XVI
from his
Urbi et Orbi message - April 16, 2006
