Easter is a joyous reminder that Jesus' Resurrection overcomes fear and doubt, the U.S. bishops said in their 2017 Easter message.
"Through Christ's passion, His burial in the tomb and His glorious resurrection, we come to realize the enormity of the Lord's sacrifice for us," Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said April 17.
While we may feel unworthy of this love, he said, "Let us not be afraid. Let's allow ourselves to be taken – even seized – with Easter joy."
