"Do not abandon yourselves to despair.
We are the Easter people and Alleluia is our song."
Pope Ven John Paul II
"During this Easter season I encourage all of you
to discover ever more fully in the Eucharist,
the sacrament of Christ’s sacrificial love, the
inspiration and strength needed to work ever
more generously for the spread of God’s Kingdom
and the growth of the civilization of love"
(cf. Sacramentum Caritatis, 90).
Pope Benedict XVI
