Jerusalem’s Christian leaders issue Easter message

Catholic World News - April 17, 2014

Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant leaders in Jerusalem have issued their annual joint Easter message.

“When our Savior died on Good Friday it seemed to his disciples as if their world had come to an end,” they said. “The raising of Jesus from the dead by the power of God the Father on the first Easter morning was the ultimate assurance that transformation by the grace of God is always possible, even in the apparently most intractable of human situations.”

“Here in the Middle East we are acutely conscious of the ravages of violence in places such as Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere, as well as of the struggles of countless thousands of refugees who have been displaced from their homes,” they added. “We are thankful for all the churches and Church-related organizations that are providing support, which is greatly appreciated.”
