CWN Editor's Note: “Dear brothers and sisters, Happy Easter! Jesus, the Crucified One, is risen!”, Pope Francis said in his Easter message, delivered on Easter Sunday from the central loggia of St. Peter’s Basilica (video).

“He stands in the midst of those who mourned him, locked behind closed doors and full of fear and anguish,” the Pope continued. “He comes to them and says: Peace be with you!’ (Jn 20:19). He shows the wounds in his hands and feet, and the wound in his side. He is no ghost; it is truly Jesus, the same Jesus who died on the cross and was laid in the tomb...”

During the message, the Pope, who suffers from knee pain, sat down for several minutes.
