Patriarch Bartholomew leads Orthodox in Easter celebration

April 16, 2012

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople led the celebrations of Easter for the Orthodox world on April 15, releasing an Easter message in which he said that although men have been frustrated by the search for a “fountain of eternal life,” Jesus offers the true possibility of life forever.

"If the resurrection of Christ only involved Him, it would have no meaning for us," the Orthodox leader said. "But Christ is not risen alone. With Him the whole human race is risen.”
