The Easter Season is near ...
"The Paschal Mystery has two aspects: by his death, Christ liberates us from sin; by his Resurrection, He opens for us the way to a new life. This new life is above all justification that reinstates us in God's grace, 'so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in the newness of life.' Justification consists in both victory over death caused by sin and a new participation in grace. It brings about filial adoption so that men become Christ's brethren, as Jesus himself called his disciples after his Resurrection: 'Go and tell my brethren.' We are brethren not by nature, but by the gift of grace, because that adoptive filiation gains us a real share in the life of the only Son, which was fully revealed in his Resurrection."
- Catechism of the Catholic Church, 656

"On this (day) of Resurrection everything begins anew; creation regains its authentic meaning in the plan of salvation. It is like a new beginning of history and of the cosmos, because Christ is risen 'the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep' (1 Corinthians 15:20). Christ, the 'last Adam,' has become 'a life-giving spirit' (1 Corinthians 15:45).
The same sin of our forefathers is sung in the Easter Proclamation as felix culpa. 'O happy fault, which gained for us so great a Redeemer!' Where sin abounded, grace now abounds all the more, and 'the stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone ...' (Psalm 118:22) of an indestructible spiritual edifice.
On this holy (day) ... a new people is born with whom God has sealed an eternal covenant in the blood of the Word made flesh, crucified and risen."
- words of Pope John Paul II in his Easter Vigil homily 2003 - from the book "Lent and Easter: Wisdom from Pope John Paul II."
