Surrexit Christus, spes mea (“ Christ my hope is risen” ). These these words – from the Easter Sequence Victime paschali laudes, which are sung at the Mass of the Solemnity of the Resurrection of the Lord – contained Benedict XVI's Easter greeting. The picture on his Easter card this year is of the Resurrection (1763) painted by the German artist Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder (1722-1789).
