«What a joy it is for me
to announce this message: Christ is risen!
I would like it to go out to every house and every family.
Most of all, I would like it to enter every heart, for it is there that God wants to sow this Good News!»

What is the Way of Light?

Journey with the Risen Lord.

A new way to express Easter joy in the third millennium
Christ is the centre of the life of the world.

The Easter mystery is the centre of the life of Christ.
It is represented by the two phases of the death-resurrection.

The popular mediation of the first action is by the Way of the Cross. After the Vatican II the necessity of the popular mediation of the second aspect was rediscovered: the Way of the Light.
Today, more than ever, it is necessary that people recognise this as their own way.

Easter must not be only a mear feast in calendar but a style of life.

The Way of the Light is similar to the Way of the Cross: fourteen stations, with corresponding biblical passages that start from the Empty Tomb, first sign of the resurrection, up to the Pentecost, as its primordial fruit; there are also available adequate biblical passages

And as the Way of the Cross has been planned with the company of Mary, full of sorrow because of her Suffering Son, so along the Way of the Light it's Mary who continues to accompany us, Mother who rejoices in the resurrection of her Son.

For centuries the Church has prayed the antiphon "Regina caeli laetare alleluia" and recently she has composed texts for eucharistic celebration in honour of "Mary, who rejoices in her Son's resurrection".

The antiphon "Regina caeli laetare alleluia" has already been alive in the Church for ages, and now in honour of "Mary, who rejoices in her Son's resurrection" the Church has composed texts for Eucharistic Celebration.

Also the Holy Rosary devotes its third part to the glorious mysteries. Aren't they the summary of the Way of the Light, which also presents a natural development starting from the Easter of the Child to that of the children?

Easter Mary takes us along the fourteen stations of the Way of the Light which inaugurates the third millennium.

And this calls us to live out our hope daily.

«Since Christ is resurrected,
we can look with new eyes and a new heart at every event of our lives, even the most negative ones.
Moments of darkness, of failure and even sin can be transformed and announce the beginning of a new path.»

The Resurrection
The Resurrection is the event that changed history.
It’s not a theory but a fact.
It’s not an invention but a verification.

The first incredulous followers, doubtful towards the fact, bent to the evidence.
They were accustomed, due to their culture, to accepting after having verified.

Luke transmits the word of the Risen Christ who orders to certify the seriousness of his live body with the expression “pselafésate” which literally means “pinch me, touch me not superficially”.

Every man, like the Son of Man, no longer has a destiny – death – but a destination: a home, in God’s embrace, that welcomes His Son and all of us, sons in His Son.

«“I arose and now I am still with you,” he says to each of us. My hand upholds you. Wherever you may fall, you will always fall into my hands. I am present even at the door of death.
Where no one can accompany you further, and where you can bring nothing, even there I am waiting for you, and for you I will change darkness into light.»

«The Prince of life, who died, reigns alive.
Christ my hope is arisen! We know Christ is truly risen from the dead!»
