"Easter is the high point in the Christian calendar in which, after having been mercilessly crucified, Jesus rises from the tomb, thus delivering a crushing blow to the sin, the death and the evil that has such a tight grip on this earthly world."
"Even in this year, when it seems we cannot escape the cloud of despair enveloping this earth, we still celebrate the Son of God, coming to earth to live among us, suffering like us and voluntarily taking death to his grave with him so that we don’t have to."
