Pope Benedict XVI, Message for World Mission Sunday

In truth, the whole of humanity has the radical vocation to return to its source, to return to God, since in Him alone can it find fulfilment through the restoration of all things in Christ. Dispersion, multiplicity, conflict and enmity will be healed and reconciled through the blood of the Cross and led back to unity.

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday marks the greatest event in the history of the world: the Resurrection of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, from the dead. The Risen Jesus told His disciples on the road to Emmaus that it was necessary for Him to suffer and die, publicly, so He could rise from the dead and prove that everything He said was true: He is the Son of God.
