Easter Proclaims That Love Gives Life, Pope Says; Share It With Others
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Francis urged Christians to remember how they first encountered Christ and to share his love and mercy with others, especially through acts of caring and sharing.
Proclaiming the good news of Jesus' resurrection means giving concrete witness "to unconditional and faithful love," he said April 20 before solemnly giving his blessing "urbi et orbi" (to the city and the world).
Celebrating the second Easter of his pontificate, the pope told at least 150,000 people gathered in St. Peter's Square and on adjacent streets that evangelization "is about leaving ourselves behind and encountering others, being close to those crushed by life's troubles, sharing with the needy, standing at the side of the sick, elderly and the outcast."

Dahil dito, kailangang magpulong ang may 1 1 5 Kardinal mula sa iba't-ibang diyosesis at arkidiyosesis sa maraming bansa upang pumili at ihalal ang susunod na Santo Papa pagkatapos na magretiro si Benedicto noong ika-28 ng Pebrero taong kasalukuyan.
Ang pagbabagong ito ay lumikha ng maraming usap-usapan at diskusyon dahil ito ay maituturing na isang pambihirang kaganapan sa loob
