Signs of Hope, Signs of Resurrection


On Easter Sunday Pope Benedict, speaking from the dramatic loggia of St. Peter's Basilica, gave a beautiful meditation on the Risen Lord basing much of his talk on the Easter Sequence: Victimae Paschali Laudes which speaks of "sudarium et vestes". This phrase to my mind is a clear reference to the sudarium now in Manoppello and the shroud now in Turin, as well as to the other grave cloths of Jesus now present in various other parts of Europe. This video shows the complete Easter morning ceremony with Pope Benedict speaking from the loggia. You can click on the english audio for the translation of his Italian address. These signs of hope, which are signs of resurrection are still with us
