Christians Advised To Proclaim Resurrection Of Jesus

Many Russian citizens visit cemeteries on Easter Sunday - the day of Jesus Christ's resurrection - to pay tribute to their late ancestors.

Ayade noted that Christ's resurrection was not to engage in wild and elaborate celebration "but to give our lives meaning and direction and the opportunity to close ranks, no matter our differences and circumstances".

"I wish all Nigerians a happy Easter in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord".

THERE ARE three times during a year that a church can expect to have a full house, or at the very least more visitors than usual - and that's at the Sunday service before Christmas, the Watchnight New Year's Eve service and the Easter service.

He said this on Sunday in his Easter Message signed by his Special Assistant (Media & Communications), Adebayo Oladeji.

Families go to church, meet relatives and enjoy with their families on Easter Sunday. Easter service at St Andrew's Church will begin at 9.30am.

Christians will flock to area churches this morning to celebrate Easter.

"For all Catholics in the Rio GrandeValley, Easter Sunday is the day the church calls us together to celebrate what God has done for us along with the renewal of our baptismal promises". You and I are like yeast: small and insignificant; yet, with an awesome capacity to enliven, enlighten and enthuse others.

I love Easter because it is a day in which we can say to each other "Christ is Risen" and know it is true. "Because of this resurrection, we can have life instead of death; vitality instead of lack of energy; hope instead of despair and victory instead of defeat". In the United States, children often hunt for Easter eggs, which are often brightly-dyed hard boiled eggs, though they can be plastic eggs filled with candy or small denominations of money.

Klein said Easter Sunday is a reminder of "how truly blessed we are".

I believe that as we remember with great thanks Christ's resurrection from the dead, this is something that we can be thankful for every day as we see a new day dawn and give witness to the wonder of God's creation in our lives.
