Patriarch Daniel’s Easter Message 2018: Holy Easter is the celebration of life’s victory over death and the triumph of joy over sorrow (Video)

Mesajul Părintelui Patriarh Daniel la Sărbătoarea Sfintelor Paşti 2018

His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel of Romania sent a video message for this year’s feast of the Resurrection of the Lord, stressing that ‘Holy Easter is the celebration of life’s victory over death and the triumph of joy over sorrow.’

The Romanian Patriarch called upon all the believers to offer merciful love, peace and joy to others, especially to the orphans, the sick, the poor, the grieving, and the lonely.

Full text of the message below the video.

The Resurrection of Christ is the foundation of the resurrection of all humans. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive, Saint Paul teaches in his first epistle to the Corinthians.

The life of all the mankind is therefore directed towards resurrection, while the present physical universe is directed to a new heaven and a new earth in which death will no longer be, as we read in the book of Revelation, chapter 21.

That is why, on Easter night we sing: Now all things have been filled with light, both heaven and earth and those beneath the earth.

Since the feast of Holy Easter is the celebration of life’s victory over death and the triumph of joy over sorrow, we are called to offer merciful love, peace and joy to those around us, especially to the orphans, the sick, the poor, the grieving, and the lonely.

On the feast of Holy Pascha, we wish you all good health and salvation, peace and joy, addressing you the Easter greeting: Christ is Risen!
