POPE FRANCIS on Easter Sunday said that the message of Christ’s life, death and resurrection was not out of date, and people could always find inspiration in His life.

Pope Francis, in his Twitter account, posted three messages about Christ’s resurrection.

His first message was about redemption and how people can return to Christ even after committing sins and failures.

“It is always possible to begin anew, because there is a new life that God can awaken in us in spite of all our failures. From the rubble of our hearts, God can create a work of art,” he said.

The Pope also emphasized that Christ is always with us.

“Faith is not an album of past memories; Jesus is not outdated,” he said in his second message.

“He is alive here and now. He walks beside you each day, in every situation you are experiencing, in every trial you have to endure, in your deepest hopes and dreams.”

In his third message, the Pope reminded Catholics of Christ’s limitless love.

“Jesus, the Risen Lord, loves us without limits and is there at every moment of our lives. He invites us to overcome barriers, banish prejudices and draw near to those around us every day in order to rediscover the grace of everyday life.

‘God is with us even in darkness’

The Master of the Order of Preachers also reminded Catholics that God accompanies everyone even in the darkest of times and guides them towards the light.

“Even in darkness, God can accomplish his great works: from the act of Creation over the dark and formless void, to the Exodus from Egypt after the evening of the Passover; then at Bethlehem, the Lord Jesus was born in the darkness of light,” he said in his Easter message.

“The darkness of Jesus’ tomb invites us to entrust ourselves to a God because this God draws sense out of senselessness, hope out of hopelessness, victory out of defeat, life out of death,” Timoner, the grand chancellor of the University, added.

Easter Sunday commemorates the resurrection of Jesus, marking the fulfillment of God’s promise of salvation to mankind.
