This year, the Easter Sunday Honouring of Lord Jesus is
on

SIGNIFICANCE OF EASTER

The last phase of Jesus’s life is also called ‘Passion of Jesus’ and the week leading to Easter is called ‘Passion Week‘ or ‘Holy Week‘ which includes Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and finally Easter Sunday.

Jesus sacrificed his life to save this earth realm from the prevalent barbarianism at that time. The day of crucification of Jesus by the Romans is commemorated as ‘Good Friday’ and  three days later, it is said that Jesus resurrected. The resurrection of Jesus is celebrated as ‘Easter’ and is considered as a rebirth of Christianity. Easter is Jesus Christ’s victory over death.  


OBSERVANCES

Traditionally, Easter is preceded by ‘Lent’, a 40-day period of fasting, prayer and penance. Through the weekend from Good Friday to Easter, people abstain from non-vegetarian meals and some eat vegetarian food only. Candle lighting and prayers to remember and honour Lord Jesus are a norm.

Easter is usually observed sometime between sunset on Easter Saturday and sunrise on Easter Sunday. Easter celebrations are marked by Easter eggs and Easter Bunny both of which are both fertility symbols, which symbolise new life.
