Easter message from head of Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church

Catholic World News - April 21, 2014

"Beloved in Christ! Despite this year's trial and uncertainty, Easter - 'the day which the Lord hath made' (Ps. 117, 24) - is the time for us of unspeakable joy and hope," Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, said in his Easter message.

"In the light of the Resurrection Feast, the holy Church sings the mystery of the combination of opposites: burial and resurrection, death and life, crucifixion and glory, sorrow and joy. In that lies the great Paschal mystery that the Son of God became one of us, dies, just like us, that we may rise again, as He has!"
