"Resurrexi, et adhuc tecum sum. Alleluia!"

"I have risen, I am still with you. Alleluia!"

(The Resurrection, by Mathis Grünewald 1465-1528)

"In his glorious wounds we recognize the indestructible signs of the infinite mercy of the God of whom the prophet says: it is he who heals the wounds of broken hearts, who defends the weak and proclaims the freedom of slaves, who consoles all the afflicted and bestows upon them the oil of gladness instead of a mourning robe, a song of praise instead of a sorrowful heart" (cf. Is 61:1,2,3).
PP. Benedictus XVI
