"Awake, O Sleeper...."
More recently, though, we've all shared another experience of keeping vigil in expectant hope. And as an epic Lent among us reaches its fulfillment, let that sign of the wait's end be ours again....
Ecclesia Dei, Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro – Surrexit Christus, spes nostra, Alleluia!
Christos voskrese... ¡El Señor resucitó, Aleluya!
Indeed, church, He is Risen – every blessing, gift and joy of Easter to you and yours....
Fratelli e sorelle, Buona Pasqua!
(Translation: "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He isn't here – He is Risen.")
