Regina caeli, laetare! Rejoice, Holy Virgin, because He whom you bore in your womb is risen!
Dear brothers and sisters, let us try to relive the joy of the Resurrection with Mary’s heart. Even in the darkness of Good Friday she prepared herself to receive the light of Easter morning. Let us ask her to obtain for us a deep faith in this extraordinary event, which is salvation and hope for the world.
Pope St John Paul II, Easter 1996
