With respect, humility and contrition, we attended the Holy Days of the course and the culmination of the Divine Drama. We experienced the sacred moments of Divine Passion, pain, humiliation and suffering. At the end of this course, however, it was the happy and hopeful message of Resurrection.
The message of Easter celebration, above all, is a message of love to our fellow man, and hope for life, that through the resurrected difficulties, timeless values ​​and so timely. The symbolism of the greater celebration of Christianity teaches us that no matter how hard you are tested, you stand with power, solidarity with fellow human beings, faith and optimism, we will find the way out of the terrible ordeal.
Let's keep this great truth as a valuable legacy in our daily life. Those difficulties and adversities, even in the bad times, there is always an end in the Light of Hope and Optimism. For everyone and each individual.
Best wishes to all from the heart, spend these days blessed with health, peace, personal and family warmth and happiness.
Christ is Risen !
