The President says that this is a chance to embrace loved ones, give thanks for our blessings, and help those less fortunate as we celebrate our individual traditions as well as the thread of humanity that connects us all.

Statement by the President on Easter Weekend:

President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama

This weekend, Michelle and I join our fellow Christians here at home and around the world in marking Good Friday and celebrating Easter. These Holy Days are a time to reflect on the momentous sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for each of us, and to celebrate the triumph of the Resurrection and His gift of grace. It is a time for renewed hope amidst continued challenges.  It’s also a time to ponder the common values that unite us — to have compassion for all and to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves.  As we embrace our loved ones and give thanks for our blessings, we wish all who celebrate with us a blessed Easter.
