“The resurrection of Christ is the principle of new life for every man and every woman, for true renewal always begins from the heart, from the conscience. Yet Easter is also the beginning of the new world, set free from the slavery of sin and death: the world open at last to the Kingdom of God, a Kingdom of love, peace and fraternity. Christ is alive and he remains with us. Risen, he shows us the light of his face, and he does not abandon all those experiencing hardship, pain and sorrow.” (Pope Francis, Urbi et Orbi Message, Easter 2019). The 1.15 euro stamp dedicated to Easter 2020 represents a reworking – in the form of street art – of the Ascension by Heinrich Hofmann (1824-1911) located in Rome, near Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II.
