(CNA) In his Easter message to the city and the world, Pope Francis, focused on the victory of love brought about through Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.
“The message that Christian’s bring to the world is this: Jesus, Love incarnate died on the cross for our sins but God the Father raised Him and made Him the Lord of life and death. In Jesus, love has triumphed over hatred, mercy over sinfulness, goodness over evil, truth over falsehood, life over death,” said Pope Francis.
Emphasizing the power of God’s “unconditional and faithful love” for every human situation, praying for the many areas of the world suffering from violence of conflicts and urging Christians to seek paths of peace and reconciliation.
Pope Francis then issued a blessing to those gathered in St Peter’s Square and those throughout the world listening and watching by various types of media.
