The teaching of scripture is that he must rise from the dead.

It is appropriate that, on this day, the Holy Father should deliver Easter greetings in more than sixty languages to the vast crowd assembled in St Peter’s Square, for Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is not only the very foundation of our Christian faith and hope but also good news for the whole of humankind.

We affirm our belief in this great mystery of God’s love, sadly sometimes rather perfunctorily, every time we say the Creed. Like Mary Magdalene, Peter, John and the other disciples who were graced by the presence of the Risen Christ, we are called to give joyful and grateful witness to this faith by our daily lives. Truly, in St Augustine’s words, ‘We are Easter people and ‘Alleluia’ is our song.’
