Today, throughout the entire world, the Church proclaims once again the wondrous news of the first disciples: "Jesus is risen!" – "He is truly risen, as he said!" The ancient feast of Passover, the commemoration of the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery, reaches its completion with the resurrection of Jesus Christ who freed us from the slavery of sin and death, and opened the way for us to eternal life. When we let sin dominate our lives, we lose our way on the right path, and we go wandering around like lost sheep. Our Shepherd, God himself, came searching for us. In order to save us, he lowered Himself to the humiliation of the cross. Today we can proclaim: "The Good Shepherd has risen, who laid down his life for his sheep, and willingly died for his flock, alleluia!".
