"Easter gives us the spiritual power to appreciate the truth that his dying moment on the cross offers us the greatest illustration of forgiveness, faith and belief necessary to strive as one indivisible nation", he said.

The faithful may feel unworthy of Christ's love because he "paid so high a price for our salvation", but "let us not be afraid", said Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

May the joy and peace of Easter be with you! For Western churches, it can fall anywhere from March 22 to April 25, while the Orthodox Easter dates range from April 4 to May 8.

An Anglican priest wants Barbadians to remember that experiencing light in their lives is not a one-off or sudden event, but rather a transition that takes time and reflection.

I love Easter when families come together to share a meal, a few hours of making memories, a reminder of just how important they are to each other.

Karlsson scores in OT to give Sharks 3-2 win over Oilers
Just like that, a Sharks team that seemed dead in the water heading into this series appears to have acquired a new lease on life. The Oilers had already killed two penalties when Drake Caggiula got flagged for hooking with 14 seconds left in the first period.

"Where at times we can lose track of our faith or have faced personal struggles throughout the year, Easter Sunday is a reminder of how greatly blessed we are to be in communion with God through Jesus Christ, his son", Klein said.

Marking the end of the Holy Week in Christianity, Easter Sunday is celebrated after mass prayers by the handing out of Easter eggs. On the Jewish lunar calendar, that was the 14th day of Nisan.

"My own denomination, the Nigerian Baptist Convention are gathering in Abuja for a whole week beginning from this weekend to seek the face of our God for Nigeria, her people and our leaders". But Jesus Christ, who was crucified and resurrected in the name of mankind, atoned for the original sin and opened the way into heaven for good and godly people.

"We turned it into a big celebration - we set up the chairs in a big rectangle facing the communion table".

"Well the importance for Easter, for us Catholics, is when Jesus is risen".
