"In this way, we proclaim with Mary, 'I have seen the Lord.' Sing joyfully, 'the Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.' Happy Easter!" "The power of Christ's Cross and Resurrection is greater than any evil which man could or should fear", he wrote.

Thousands of worshippers flocked to Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the site where Christians believe Jesus was crucified and resurrected. Angel Sebastian, a school student, said she makes glitter and coloured eggs and played egg-hunting games with her friends.

The services were to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, an important event to the faithful.

Churches were adorned with candles, rice lights, flowers and colour eggs on Easter Sunday. So All of that to say we are commemorating what Jesus did on the cross for us.

Metropolitan Archbishop of Tamale Most Reverend Philip Naameh in a Easter Homily advised Christians against seeking shortcuts to their problems but rather depend on God who works according to his own time. Considering those and other categories, Americans will spend $18.4 billion this year to celebrate Easter, the organization learned in a survey.

Other Churches throughout the country are marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ with church services while others climaxed theirs with Easter Conventions with a hope of renewed spirit following the resurrection of Christ.

"The flowering of it transforms a barren cross, a reminder of Jesus' death, into an Easter symbol", she said. The best part of all that is the Bible also teaches us in the book of Romans that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead thou shalt be saved.

The culmination of Holy Week brings out not just regularly attending parishioners, but often their entire families - even some who are wavering or have lapsed in their faith.

"Speaking here on Easter, I am super nervous".

I love Easter because the music is so uplifting - and reminds me of the people I love who sang it with me for so many years.

Sen. Oluremi Tinubu, representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, on Sunday felicitated with Christians at Easter, saying it was another opportunity to redeem the nation from the throes of challenges that had plagued her.
