EASTER VIGIL: We have been touched by Grace!

Published on Apr 20, 2014 

Pope Francis presided over the Great Easter Vigil Mass in the Vatican Basilica. In his homily, he spoke of the angel's invitation to the disciples to go to Galilee, because there the risen Christ has gone there ahead of them. The Pope noted that Galilee is the place where they were first called, where everything began! To return to Galilee means above all to return to that blazing light with which God's grace touched me at the start of the journey. From that flame I can light a fire for today and every day, and bring heat and light to my brothers and sisters. That flame ignites a humble joy, a joy which sorrow and distress cannot dismay, a good, gentle joy
