Pope John Paul II – Karol Wojtyla
In Paradisum deducant te Angeli
"What was destroyed was rebuilt…"
"This night is truly extraordinary — a night in which the blazing light of the Risen Christ conquers in a definitive way the power of the darkness of evil and death, and rekindles hope and joy in believers’ hearts. "Dear ones, guided by the liturgy, let us pray to the Lord Jesus that the world will see and recognize that, thanks to His passion, death and resurrection, what was destroyed was rebuilt, what was old became new and everything returned, more beautiful than before, to its original integrity".
