At the solemn Easter Vigil after the days of Lent the singing of the «Alleluia», a Hebrew word known across the world that means «Praise the Lord», rings out once again. During the days of Eastertide this invitation spreads by word of mouth, from heart to heart. It re-echoes an absolutely new event: Christ’s death and Resurrection. The «alleluia» welled up in the hearts of Jesus’ first disciples, men and women, on that Easter morning in Jerusalem.... It almost seems as though we hear their voices: that of Mary of Magdala, who was the first to see the Risen Lord in the garden near Calvary; the voices of the women who met him as they ran, fearful but happy, to tell the disciples the news of the empty tomb; the voices of the two disciples who had set out for Emmaus with gloomy faces and returned to Jerusalem in the evening, filled with joy at having heard his words and recognized him «in the breaking of the bread»; the voices of the Eleven Apostles who on that same evening saw the Lord appearing in their midst in the Upper Room, showing them the wounds of the nails and spear and saying to them: «Peace be with you». This experience engraved the «alleluia» in the Church’s heart once and for all! (Benedict XVI, Easter Monday 2008)
