.- During Easter Sunday Mass, the Archbishop of Toledo, Cardinal Antonio Canizares, warned that to deny or forget the Resurrection would be to spread “a vision of the world, a vision of man, a vision of God, a concept of the world and of reality completely different from Christian revelation, which is valid and universal for all.”

Cardinal Canizares expressed his hope that the Resurrection of Christ would “free us of all tendencies towards skepticism and relativism or the denial of the truth, as if these were values and achievements.”

He also said he hoped the celebration of Christ’s rising would free believers of “the superficiality of thinking that all points of view are acceptable” and that “all religions are equal or that every way of living or acting merits equal consideration.”

Later on in his homily, the Cardinal also criticized the emergence of a “new anthropology” which is the fruit of the misuse of human freedom and which has led to the “reinterpretation” of the fundamental rights of man by international organisms and legislatures.
