“Christ my hope is arisen”. Perturbed by latent threats of violence and death, people are in search of someone who will give them peace and security. But where can they find peace other than in the innocent Christ who reconciled sinners with the Father?
On Calvary, Divine Mercy manifested his face of love and forgiveness for everyone. In the Upper Room after his Resurrection, Jesus entrusted the Apostles with the task of being ministers of this mercy, a source of reconciliation among men and women.
John Paul II, April 14, 2004 (English translation by www.vatican.va)
Wishing you peace, the Easter hope and regeneration unto new life in Christ!
Msgr. Sergei Timashov, rector, Mary the Queen of the Apostles Roman Catholic Seminary and the seminary congregation, St. Petersburg
