Be witnesses of Christ's victory, Pope tells faithful on Easter Monday

Catholic World News - April 05, 2010

The Catholic faithful must be "messengers of Christ's resurrection and victory over evil and death," Pope Benedict XVI said during a midday audience on Easter Monday, April 5. Priests especially should be "joyful and courageous messengers" in our troubled times, he said.

The Holy Father spoke to the faithful at his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, where he is spending a few days to relax after the demanding schedule of Holy Week. The Pope had shown clear signs of fatigue on Easter Sunday when he delivered his Urbi et Orbi message at midday, after having presided at the Easter Vigil the previous night. On Monday he looked much less weary.
