"Jesus is risen! Alleluia!"

"With Christ's death and resurrection, Christ has conquered sin and death, the gates of heaven are now open to man.

And He said to them, "Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Good News to all creation."
(Mark 16: 14-15)



We are reminded that the gospels are written, that we might come to believe in our Lord and have life in his name.

Jesus is the “Bread of Life.”

Do not work for food that perishes
but for the food that endures for eternal life.”
“The bread of God is that which comes down from heaven
and gives life to the world.”
“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give is my Flesh for the life of the world.”
“Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood
remains in me and I in him.”

This marvelous dialogue ends with this exchange with his disciples: “Jesus then said to the Twelve, 'Do you also want to leave?' Simon Peter answered him, 'Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.'”

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

Holy Father's Intentions for the Month of April

Universal: Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.

Evangelization: Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.


Brothers and sisters, good morning!

I am pleased to welcome you to my first general audience. With deep gratitude and veneration I am taking up the "witness" from the hands of my beloved predecessor, Benedict XVI. After Easter we will resume the catechesis on the Year of Faith. Today I would like to focus a little on Holy Week. With Palm Sunday we began this week - the center of the whole liturgical year - in which we accompany Jesus in His Passion, Death and Resurrection.
