My brothers and sisters in Christ,
Christ is risen!
Today, as you know, we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a different celebration this year because almost everyone all over the world has been forced to celebrate this Easter Sunday in their homes, because we know our world has been shut down by the coronavirus pandemic.
This is different but it’s wonderful to have to have all of you, in a virtual way through the means of communication that we have to help us to be together this morning.
In Rome this morning, the Holy Father Pope Francis celebrated Easter, just as we are celebrating here — without the physical presence of the faithful, streaming the service over the internet.
