Here is some of Pope Benedict's Easter Vigil sermon:
At Easter, on the morning of the first day of the week, God said once
again: “Let there be light”. The night on the Mount of Olives, the
solar eclipse of Jesus’ passion and death, the night of the grave had
all passed. Now it is the first day once again – creation is beginning
anew. “Let there be light”, says God, “and there was light”: Jesus
rises from the grave. Life is stronger than death. Good is stronger
than evil. Love is stronger than hate. Truth is stronger than lies.
The darkness of the previous days is driven away the moment Jesus rises
from the grave and himself becomes God’s pure light. But this applies
not only to him, not only to the darkness of those days. With the
resurrection of Jesus, light itself is created anew. He draws all of us
after him into the new light of the resurrection and he conquers all
darkness. He is God’s new day, new for all of us.
