Easter: a triumphant certainty that God is the supreme Lord of all things, King of glory

The Church is not just Mother when She teaches us the great mission of austere suffering. She is also Mother when in extreme pain and annihilation, She shows us the light of Christian hope, opening the horizons before us to that virtue of quiet confidence that rests in the eyes of all true sons of God.

Thus, the Holy Church makes use of the vibrant and most pure joys of Easter to hold before our eyes, even in the sorrows of today’s world, the triumphant certainty that God is the supreme Lord of all things, that Christ is King of glory, who conquered death and crushed the devil, that his Church is the queen of immense majesty, able to rise above the debris, to dispel all darkness, and shine with a most dazzling triumph, at a time when it seemed to await the most terrible and the most hopeless of defeats.
