Dresden (dpa / sn) - The bishop of the Dresden-Meißen diocese, Heinrich Timmerevers, connects the highest festival of Christians this year with the call to find God anew.

"Where is the God of salvation in the pandemic," he asks in his Easter message in 2021. "I perceive that many today can no longer believe - whether in God or the Easter resurrection."

It is a «phenomenon of this time that the security of our lives is being lost».

In this concealment of God, which also exists beyond Corona, lies a task: “Let us discover him: in the people whose grief and fear for life and existence we can endure, in the devotion to the hopeless of these days, with patience and consideration the health of others, in the marginalized, in the beggar on the side of the road, ”he says.

"I am sure that where love is given, there we meet the risen One."
