Happy Easter PDF Print E-mail

During Easter, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the hope of new life and the promise of eternal life. Preceding the Easter Sunday celebration, Orthodox Christians commit themselves to 40 days of fasting and over the years that I have lived in Ethiopia I have observed that the rules during the fasting time have become more strict. Years ago, it was common to eat fish but that is not at all acceptable to many anymore. Now many believers only take their lunch at 3pm and during the last few days touching each other or shaking hands is also not done, I am told. It is good to fast and refrain from enjoying certain things but whether we fast or not and whether we are more strict or less, Jesus Christ has risen from the dead and left us with the promise of eternal life.
