"On this glorious day, 'let the earth rejoice, in shining splendor' (Easter Proclamation) ... The Easter message of the risen Christ, a message of life for all humanity, echoes down the ages and invites us not to forget those men and women seeking a better future, an ever more numerous throng of migrants and refugees – including many children – fleeing from war, hunger, poverty and social injustice."
