The present way of life is characterized by fast and advanced technology as well as a widening of the frontiers of knowledge and social networking.

For forty days we have journeyed together toward Easter during the Lenten Season. We burst into joy when we reached the summit of our journey on that night of nights when we stayed awake and waited for the moment of the triumph of our Lord Jesus Christ over death on Easter Vigil. It was a solemn moment for all of us when the priest celebrant chanted, “Christ our Light” while holding aloft the Paschal candle amidst the darkness of the night.
