Pope Francis extends Easter greetings to Eastern Churches

3 May 2021

After the prayer of the Regina Cœli on Sunday 2 May, the Holy Father sent his greetings to the Eastern Churches celebrating the feast of Holy Easter on that day:

“I send my best wishes to our brothers and sisters of the Orthodox Churches and of the Eastern and Latin Catholic Churches who today, according to the Julian calendar, celebrate the solemnity of Easter. May the Risen Lord fill them with light and peace and comfort the communities that live in particularly difficult situations. Happy Easter to them!”
