Celebrating Easter, Cardinal Péter Erdő, the head of the Hungarian Catholic Church, said God “faithfully loves man, especially in troubled times."
According to MTI, the cardinal said Jesus “thanked his Father while preparing for torture and death” at the Last Supper. “It is important that we are able to express our gratitude to God who loves us eternally and will never leave us alone in trouble,” he said.
Erdő said that during the past year of the pandemic ties between people had strengthened despite physical isolation. “It has become natural for people to pay more attention to each other,” he said.
The cardinal said he was not afraid that people would “get unaccustomed to going to church” and that he was seeing “just the opposite”. “Many phone asking when they can come again or where they could have holy communion … and we can hardly wait for the situation to improve, with eased restrictions and everything again in the usual order,” he said.
