Happy Easter to all in the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh!

In a message to Catholics, Archbishop Leo Cushley said: "Our celebrations this year are in a context of greater hope and optimism than we had last year. It is also a sobering moment, a time to remember those who have died over the last year; to pause over their memory with affection and gratitude, and to entrust them to the Lord.

"But the story we remembered on Good Friday and that of the Lord's Tomb is one that fills us with quiet confidence, with hope and with the thrill of New Life before us, because we believe that, by joining Christ in death we can also join him in life.

"Let us therefore today look up from the Empty Tomb with renewed hope and joy in the Lord."
