JERUSALEM, April 20, 2011 – “In a world of suffering and death, these words of resurrection and life transcend us. Jesus first addressed these words to Martha of Bethany when Jesus stood at the tomb of his good friend Lazarus (John 11:25). This occasion is one that has profound meaning because Jesus shows clearly his emotions in the face of death, weeping openly over the death of his friend.”

And so begins Bishop Munib Younan’s Easter Message for 2011. It is a powerful message of hope, promise, and call in the midst of our world today, rooted in Jesus’ words: “I am the Resurrection and the Life”
