JERUSALEM — Christians in the Holy Land and across the world are celebrating Easter, commemorating the day followers believe Jesus was resurrected in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago.

The cavernous Holy Sepulcher church in Jerusalem was packed with worshippers on Sunday. The site is where Christians believe Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected.

A Mass is expected later in Bethlehem’s Nativity Church, built atop the site where Christians believe Jesus was born…


He is Risen!!! Alleluia!!!


He is Risen, indeed! Alleluia!


What a joyous Day!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!


Christos voskrese! Voistinu voskrese!


I am glad that people are celebrating Easter in both Israel and Palestine. Maybe peace can bring them together.


this is a happy day, but not all Christians are celebrating. We must pray for the Christians attacked in Lahore, Pakistan on Easter Sunday and for other Christians being targeted around the world.
