All Christians should proclaim the Resurrection, Pope tells audience
April 25, 2011
“The Resurrection of the Lord marks the renewal of our human condition,” Pope Benedict XVI told a crowd gathered to pray the Regina Caeli on Easter Monday, April 25.
The Pope held his midday audience at the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, where he is resting a few days after a heavy schedule of liturgical celebrations for Holy Week and Easter—and before the beatification of his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, on May 1.
The Pope his audience that all Christians share the obligation to proclaim the news of Christ’s Resurrection. He recalled the words of the risen Jesus to the woman who first met him: “Go and tell my brethren.” The Church, Pope Benedict said, carries on the mission to “go and tell” to the people of the world today.
