On this Easter Sunday, March 31, in his message delivered from the loggia of Saint Peter’s Basilica, in the presence of more than 60,000 faithful, the Pope raised fundamental questions about the violence raging in the world, and in particular in Haiti. Questioning the reasons for the loss of life and devastation, the Holy Father launched a vibrant call to action to promote peace, reconciliation and fraternity.

“Why so many deaths? Why so much destruction?” he asked, pointing to the persistent conflicts that cause immeasurable suffering across the globe, including Haiti. Pope Francis highlighted the multiple current challenges, such as wars, humanitarian crises, human rights violations and human trafficking, calling on everyone to assume their responsibility for a better world.

The Pontiff recalled the Easter message as a source of hope, highlighting the mystery of the resurrection of Jesus and the opening of a new path towards life, peace, reconciliation and fraternity. He cited the example of the female disciples wondering who would roll away the stones from Jesus’ tomb, symbolizing the opening of a path to the impossible through divine love.

Addressing the specific situation in Haiti, where the absence of a legitimate and credible government has persisted for years, Pope Francis called for an end to the violence which “tear and bloody the country”. He expressed the wish that Haiti can progress on the path to democracy and fraternitythus putting an end to the suffering of his people.
