Hallelujah! Christ arose!
Easter is a time of revival of faith in the strength of Christ and traditions. A time of hope which is here despite the conditions that are difficult to accept and explain. We are currently going through the pandemic period, which often results in isolation, loneliness and atomization of societies in the world, but also in more and more numerous heart reflexes, mutual assistance actions, strengthening family ties and spiritual unity with the Church’s community and God.
