Christ is risen, alleluia! This is the ancient Christian greeting on this day of great joy and happiness for all. ‘Easter is not simply one feast among others, but the ‘Feast of feasts’. The mystery of the Resurrection in which Christ crushed death, permeates with its powerful energy our old time, until all is subjected to him.’ (CCC 1169)
