In the pierced heart of the Crucified, God's own heart is opened up--here we see who God is and what he is like. Heaven is no longer locked up. God has stepped out of hiddenness.
~Pope Benedict XVI

The Lord has risen from the dead
Trembling for joy cries all creation; What is this mystery, so great and new? The Lord has risen from among the dead, And Death itself He crushed with valiant foot. Behold the cruel tyrant bound and chained, And man made free by Him who rose! ~St. Melito of Sardis
