Happy Easter

I would like to send my Easter greetings to my Bishop, my fellow clergy, the faithful of our Church and all men and women of good will.

This is an extract from the oratorio Christus by Franz Liszt. I was always struck by the way this chant of O Filii et Filiae emerges from the sadness and gloom of Good Friday, bringing us ever more into the light of the Resurrection. The former things pass away as do the grief and pain.
