Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik greeted the Christian community of the State on the occasion of Easter Sunday.
“Warm greetings on Easter. May we all be led on the path of love, unity, brotherhood and service for peace and prosperity of all,” tweeted the Chief Minister.
Easter Sunday, also called Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer and penance.
