On Easter Monday, Pope Francis stressed that Christ's resurrection calls each of us to bring the message of Easter – a message of hope and life – to the world.
"There is life!" the Pope said April 17. Now, following the Resurrection, "we will be resurrection men and women, men and women of life."
We are called to show solidarity, welcoming, and peace to people "in the midst of events that afflict the world – there are many today – in the midst of worldliness that is distant from God," he said.
These are only human signs that we can give, he continued, but "inspired and sustained by faith in the Risen Lord," we can gain effectiveness "well beyond our capacity."
