"The Lord is truly risen . . . yessss!"

After praying the Regina coeli with pilgrims in St. Peter Square today, the Pope's first greetings were in Greek and Russian to wish Happy Easter to the Orthodox Churches.

“My best regards go to our brothers of the Eastern Churches which are celebrating Easter today,” Benedict XVI said.

“May the Risen Lord bring to all the gifts of His Light and Peace. Christos anesti! Christos vaskries!”

What a wonderful series of photos. It shoes a certain boyish energy in his eyes.

Thanks for sharing this with us.
