Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia delivered his traditional Easter address to hundreds of Orthodox believers gathered at Russia’s main Orthodox church, Christ the Savior Cathedral, which was rebuilt in late 1990s after being demolished in 1931.

The patriarch called on the faithful to show care for those who desperately need support and help.

“The path of the Savior is the path of love, on which the person turns from concentrating exclusively on himself to those who need our help and support,” the head of the Russian Orthodox Church said.

Easter is the biggest Christian celebration of the year in Russia. As is tradition, the Holy Fire, which symbolizes the resurrection of Jesus Christ, was delivered to Moscow from Jerusalem for the solemn liturgy.

This year, followers of the Orthodox and Catholic Churches are celebrating Easter on the same day. The next time the two churches will share Easter celebrations won’t be until 2025.

During his “Urbi et Orbi” Easter message on Sunday, Pope Francis encouraged people not to lose faith amid wars, suffering, and destruction.

We may be tempted to ask, “But where is the Lord?” he said, as cited by the Catholic News Agency (CNA.)

“Today, the Church continues to say: ‘Stop, Jesus is risen.’” RT

Thanks to Pope Francis, the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church are now more united than ever.

As the world celebrates Easter, it is a clear sign that the Catholic Church has triumphed, at least here on earth. Everyone honors their pagan celebrations, everyone bows to Ishtar

Ezekiel 8:14 ►
    Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz… Deuteronomy 12:31 You must not worship the LORD your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the LORD hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.
