Keep Easter commitment all year, Pope urges faithful

Catholic World News - May 31, 2010

At his Angelus audience on Trinity Sunday-- May 30-- Pope Benedict XVI said that the feast "in a certain sense recapitulates the revelation of God in the Paschal mysteries."

Although the liturgical celebration of Easter has ended, and Ordinary Time begun, the Pope said that "this does not mean that the commitment of Christians must diminish." On the contrary, he said, the faithful should allow the life of the Trinity to grow in their souls through the year. He closed his remarks by citing St. Hilary of Poitiers, who prayed "that I may ever hold fast that which I professed in the creed of my regeneration, when I was baptised in the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit." In closing his midday audience the Pontiff asked for prayers for the success of his trip to Cyprus this coming weekend, June 4 to 6, and for the success of this year's assembly of the Synod of Bishops, which will be devoted to the Middle East.
