Clerics call for confession, renewal — Easter Sunday

Clerics call for confession, renewal — Easter Sunday

In its Easter message to Nigerian Christians signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issah Onilu, the APC said Nigerians should also remember the essence of the sacrifice of Jesus which is love.

In a packed auditorium with congregants adorned in white to signify victory over death, they (congregation) sang and danced in praise and glory of the resurrected Jesus.

He added that Christ rose from the dead and declared victory over death such that from now on Christians have hope of living even after death stressing that death does not have the last word on Christians.

Antoine Kambanda, Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church in Rwanda said Easter is the greatest day in the history of humanity and in the history of Christians particularly because the son of God became a man in order to save the world. It is believed that Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and rose again three days later - which is marked as Easter.

"We, therefore, admonish all Nigerians to learn from the pain, joy, love and caring which define the Easter celebrations, and allow these laudable virtues to continually guide us as a people in our individual, industrial and community relationships". God bless you. Wishing you a joyous Easter!

- Happy Easter to You, with all best wishes and blessings!

The risen Christ is celebrated in every opened flower, in every beam of nourishing sunlight, in every small patch of green beneath our feet. Easter calls for dedication to duty, and considering the interests of others before our personal gains, as Jesus Christ taught us by sacrificing His life for all.

Celebrate Easter with all love. Happy Easter to you. Have a truly blessed and wonderful Easter!

In the spirit of Easter, the Christian faithful have been admonished to imbibe the lessons of the occasion by following Christ's example.
