President Barack Obama delivered his Easter message on Sunday. He started by mentioning that Jewish families had celebrated Passover earlier in the week and that he and his family would be celebrating Easter in the traditional Christian way.
Below is an excerpt of the message.
“In the midst of all of our busy and noisy lives, these holy days afford us the precious opportunity to slow down and spend some quiet moments in prayer and reflection.
As Christians, my family and I remember the incredible sacrifice Jesus made for each and every one of us — how He took on the sins of the world and extended the gift of salvation. And we recommit ourselves to following His example here on Earth. To loving our Lord and Savior. To loving our neighbors. And to seeing in everyone, especially “the least of these,â€ as a child of God.”
