“Easter symbolizes victory over loss, forgiveness over sin, love over hatred, gain over pain, hope over hopelessness, joy over distress, belief over disbelief, peace over violence and good over evil. So, as you celebrate, I urge you all to embrace all the good things that Easter represents as true followers of Jesus Christ (Peace be unto him).

His act of humility, forgiveness, tolerance, charity, patience and love for humanity knew no bound and should be emulated by all, irrespective of our religious status.

“Importantly, in whatever way we can, let’s spread love around, reach out to the needy, put smiles on the faces of the depressed, rekindle the hope of the hopeless, and touch lives positively during this Easter celebration and even after. May God make it possible for us. Amen.

“Once again, I wish everyone of you a fantastic Easter celebration and May we witness many more on earth. Amen.”
