The editorial staff of ‘Romania Journal’ wishes its readers Happy Easter!
In his message on Easter, President Klaus Iohannis said: “Christ has risen! Dear Romanians, I wish you illuminated celebration, with peace and serenity, together with the loved ones!”
The Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church Daniel has conveyed a message to the believers: “The Easter Christ is showing us is the celebration of forgiveness, let’s call brothers even the ones who hate us. The light is the light of the Holy Easter. It shows us the love for Christ, the crucified one, as humble and merciful, with love to the Holy Father. Before dying on the cross, the Savior prayed for his enemies, for those who condemned him to death and for those who crucified him. And He said to the Heavenly Father, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do!” the Patriarch said.
Millions of Romanians have attended the religious services on the night of Saturday to Sunday, chanting ‘Christ has risen!’ Then they lit the candles with the holy light brought from Jerusalem. Some of them listened to the preachers until the morning.
