As the Church jumps into the Easter season, Pope Francis on Wednesday offered a reflection on Christ's Resurrection and the start of Christianity, saying it's not about us and what we do, but what the Lord has done for us.
"(Christianity) is not so much our search for God, but rather God's search for us. How beautiful to think that Christianity, essentially, is this!"
Jesus, the Pope said April 19, "has taken us, has seized us, has conquered us in order to not leave us anymore."
In his catechesis for his first general audience of the Easter season, Francis spoke about the "grace" and "surprise" found in our Christian faith, saying we need hearts able to wonder, because hearts that are closed-off cannot understand the truth of what Christianity is.
