Resurrection means love conquers hate, pope says

November 28, 2011

Believing in Christ's resurrection means that no matter how difficult life gets, one believes that love and goodness are far more powerful than hatred and evil, Pope Benedict XVI said.

"Yes, in the world there is much evil, there is a permanent battle between good and evil and it seems that evil is stronger.

But, no, the Lord is stronger," the pope said Nov. 16 during his weekly general audience.

"Despite all the things that make us doubt the positive outcome of history, Christ wins and goodness wins. Love, and not hatred, wins," he said.
