EASTER: A CELEBRATION OF NEW LIFE
Easter is the most important festival in the Christian calendar, and it holds the key to understanding Christianity.
Easter has a very important religious meaning for Christians all over the world. The events that happened to Jesus Christ and his followers in the days before and during Easter 2,000 years ago, remain at center of Christian belief. For a Christian writer, Joanna Bogle, the story of these events is like great drama.
“It begins with God’s creation of the world at the beginning of time, man sinning against God, and then God sending his own son, Jesus Christ, to Earth,” she explains, “He, in a way we really have to describe as mysterious, died, look on all the sins of the world and then finally, and that’s what faster is all about, rose from the dead.”
Christians believe that God made his son suffer in this way so that humans’ sins could be forgiven and their souls could go to heaven when they die. That’s why Jesus Christ is a Saviour of all Christians. This is how the Bible tells the story, and every year Christians remember this event and re-live it through ceremonies and special church services.
The actual date of Easter changes every year. For centuries, different groups of Christians celebrated it at different times. Then, eventually, western Christians agreed that Easter should fall on the first Sunday following the first full moon after 21 March. Eastern Orthodox Christians have a different way of working out when Easter should be, and also a different calendar, so they celebrate Easter a few days on a few weeks later. That’s why Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas apart.
The preparations for Easter really begin 40 days before Easter, on Shrove Tuesday. This marks the beginning of a period of fasting called Lent. Orthodox Christians take fasting very seriously. Russian Orthodox priest Father Sergei Hackel explains which foods are forbidden. “People who are serious about their Orthodox religion abstain from all animal foods, all luxuries and all dairy foods through the period of Lent.”
The main Easter celebrations take place during the “Holly Week”, which begins on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter). Maundy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter) is traditionally the day when Christians do good acts. The Queen of England still distributes “Maundy money” to pensioners.
