Happy Easter everyone!
Today is a day that Christians the world over have been eagerly waiting for! As Pope Francis addressed the tens of thousands in St Peter’s Square he appealed to Mass for world peace. With this call comes a need for an end to war and conflict together with a renewal for hope, faith as well as helping each other and looking out for one another. More so it means a call for the end of injustice and a plea for humanity to be humane.
The Easter story is that has been shared from generation to another and its message continues to hold relevance in our lives day in and day out. Ideally it means listening, heeding and essentially practicing.
In addition to the Easter story something that piques the interest of many is the way Easter traditions vary around the world. In this article by Sasha Ingber one thing is for sure- there is diversity!
