Church heads send Easter messages
Cardinal Erdo, Archbishop of Budapest-Esztergom, said this divine behaviour shows history and the world in a different light.
"Even though the horizon sometimes seems dark and hatred seems to prevail, ... the sky of history can still clear up and the sun of divine love can shine over us again", he added.
The head of the Hungarian Reformed Church's synod, Istvan Bogardi Szabo, said the history of mankind is a series of crises, but Christ's resurrection introduces mercy in the history of cruelties.
The crucial and overriding message of Christianity is that "if we look at Christ's resurrection, we can see the mercy in .. hopelessness and this mercy has the capacity to change us", the Protestant bishop said.
Hatred, violence and fear cannot have the last word, and violence is certainly not the right answer to violence; this is the painfully topical message of Easter this year, Peter Gancs, the head of the Lutheran Church of Hungary, told MTI.
He said the world has been unwilling for two-thousand years to listen to what Jesus has got to say: that mankind cannot be led to peace with arms and violence
