Vatican City, Apr 22, 2019 / 04:05 am
Pope Francis said Monday that the resurrection of Christ is the most shocking event in human history.
"What was humanly unthinkable happened," Pope Francis said April 22. "'Christ, my hope, is risen!' And in Him we too are resurrected, passing from death to life, from the slavery of sin to the freedom of love."
The pope spoke from the window of the Vatican Apostolic Palace before leading those gathered in St. Peter's Square in the traditional Easter prayer, the Regina Coeli.
"After the rites of the Easter Triduum, which made us relive the mystery of death and resurrection of our Lord, now with the eyes of faith we contemplate him risen and alive," he said.
