Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau statement Easter Message

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Easter

“Today, millions of Christians in Canada and around the world will celebrate Easter.

“Commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Easter is a celebration of rebirth and beginning anew. The resurrection of Christ provides hope for our past, present, and future. It serves as an enduring reminder of the power of belief, forgiveness, and resilience. As the holiest day in the Christian calendar, Easter invites us to reflect on the values Christ lived by and died for, and to reaffirm these values in our lives – from loving our neighbours to taking care of those most vulnerable.

“Whether you celebrate this weekend by attending church services, organizing your own Easter egg hunt, or simply enjoying quality time with your loved ones, I hope you find joy in togetherness, and look to the future with hope.

“On this holy day, we also reflect on the contributions Canadians of Christian faith of all backgrounds make to our country. With kindness and selflessness, they give back to their communities and help make Canada the diverse, inclusive, and welcoming place we know and love.

“On behalf of my family, I wish a happy and blessed Easter to everyone celebrating today.”

David Eby Premier of BC  Easter Message here 2024

 

“Spring has arrived in much of the province, just in time for Easter, making today a perfect opportunity to reflect on what the holiday represents: new beginnings and hope for the future.

“Easter is at the core of Christianity. Today, followers of the faith will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death by crucifixion. Christians will attend special church services and share an Easter meal with family and friends to mark the occasion.

“People of all faiths and backgrounds will celebrate Easter, too. Many will also enjoy a meal with loved ones, decorate eggs and have an Easter egg hunt – something my kids always look forward to.

“Easter is also a chance to consider how we can all incorporate the values of Christianity – peace, selflessness and compassion – into our daily lives, and how we can focus on what we have in common, rather than what divides us.

“From my family to yours, Happy Easter!”

Easter is celebrated by Christians as a joyous holiday because it represents the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Old Testament and the revelation of God’s salvific plan for all of humankind. In commemorating the Resurrection of Jesus, Easter also celebrates the defeat of death and the hope of salvation. Christian tradition holds that the sins of humanity were paid for by the death of Jesus and that his Resurrection represents the anticipation believers can have in their own resurrection.

Hot Cross Buns

 

 

I love hot cross buns and look forward to making these fruity spiced buns every Easter! I like to make the dough in a bread machine, but I have included instructions at the end of this recipe for using a stand mixer.

Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Additional Time: 1 hr 45 mins
Total Time: 2 hrs 25 mins
Servings: 12
Yield: 12 hot cross buns

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg, separated, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon instant powdered milk
  • teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup dried currants
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Put flour, warm water, 1/4 cup white sugar, egg, egg white, butter, yeast, milk powder, and salt in a bread maker and start on dough program.

  2. When 5 minutes of kneading are left, add currants and cinnamon. Leave in the machine until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  3. Punch down dough on a floured surface, cover, and let rest for 10 minutes.

  4. Shape into 12 balls and place in a greased 9×12-inch pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 35 to 40 minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  6. Mix egg yolk with 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl; brush on dough.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.

  8. Mix together confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Place glaze in a piping bag or a sandwich bag with the corner snipped off; pipe a cross onto each roll.

Cook’s Note

To make the dough in a stand mixer: Combine warm water and yeast in the bowl of the mixer and let soften for about 5 minutes. Add flour, milk powder, 1/4 cup white sugar, egg, egg white, and salt. Mix, scraping the dough down occasionally, on low speed using the dough hook for 10 minutes. Add butter, currants, and cinnamon and mix for an additional 5 minutes. Transfer dough to a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel, and allow it to rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Proceed with the recipe instructions.

Focaccia Bread Art: Flower Garden

 

 

 

Turn homemade bread into a piece of tasty artwork! It’s actually really easy to turn focaccia bread into a beautiful, edible gardenscape. And it’s the perfect way to celebrate spring’s arrival!

Prep Time40 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Total Time11 hours
Course: Appetizers, Bread
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Focaccia Bread
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil divided
  • assorted vegetables
  • assorted herbs

Instructions

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the yeast, honey, and lukewarm water. Add in flour and salt and mix with a rubber spatula until a rough dough forms.
  • Pour 4 tablespoons of olive oil into a large mixing bowl. Transfer the dough into the large mixing bowl and turn to coat in the olive oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours, or up to one day. The dough will double in size.
  • Prepare an 18×13 rimmed baking sheet by coating it in butter.
  • While the dough is still in the bowl, grab one side of the dough and fold it towards your body. Gently press down. Turn the bowl a 1/4 turn and repeat this step three times.
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet and pour any excess oil in the bowl onto the bread dough. Let the dough rise uncovered until it doubles in size, about 2 hours. To see if the bread is ready, poke it with your finger. If the dough springs back slowly, leaving a small indention, it is ready.
  • Place the oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees.
  • Gently stretch the dough to cover the baking sheet. The dough should be about an inch thick.
  • Dimple the dough by firmly pressing your fingers throughout the dough. Brush with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Decorate the bread with your assorted herbs and vegetables to create a gardenscape.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the bread is golden brown all over. Remove and brush with more olive oil or melted butter.

Make these creative DIY Easter Bunny Bread Bowls.  Perfect for your Easter Dinner and a great way to make a fun Easter Table. Step-by-step tutorial.

Course Breads, Easter
Cuisine American
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 1 bowl
Author Amy

Ingredients

  • 1 regular sized roll  make your own or store-bought
  • 1 bread bowl make your own or store-bought
  • 5 to othpicks
  • 2 regular chocolate chips
  • pink candy for the nose
  • knife and kitchen scissors
  • fresh parsley Easter “grass”, optional

Instructions

  1. Cut 1/4 of the bottom off of the smaller roll, leaving a small back section of the bread on the roll… so it can hang off the back of the bread bowl. This will give it some stability. Set aside.
  2. Cut the bread bowl so that you remove a small top section of the roll in a U shape. Leaving a ledge for the smaller roll to sit on.
  3. Dig out the insides of the bread in a large piece if possible so you can use some of that insides of the bread bowl for the Bunny’s tail. You can eat the rest of the bread insides with your soup if you save it.
  4. Take the top of the bread bowl you removed and cut out 2 ears. You can trim the inside of the bunny ears so they are flatter.
  5. Take the knife and slice a small hole where you want the nose. Push the candy nose in the bread. Poke a tiny hole for the eyes and then gently place the chocolate chip eyes in place.
  6. Take the bunny head and place it on top of the bread bowl ledge and secure it in place with three toothpicks.
  7. Slide the other two toothpicks into the bottom of the ears and then place them in the top of the roll for the bunny’s ears.
  8. Take a small piece of the bread you removed from inside the bowl and roll it into a ball and use it as the bunny’s tail.
  9. I took some fresh parsley and laid it down on the plate to serve as some “Easter Grass” to add to the fun and festive look!
  10. Store in an air-tight bag until you are ready to serve. These can be made in advance as long as they are stored properly.

Pop Francis  Easter message 2024

 

Transcript

Dear brothers and sisters: Happy Easter!

Today throughout the world there resounds the message proclaimed 2,000 years ago from Jerusalem: “Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified, has been raised!” (Mk 16:6).

The Church relives the amazement of the women who went to the tomb at dawn on the first day of the week. The tomb of Jesus had been sealed with a great stone. Today too, great stones, heavy stones, block the hopes of humanity: the stone of war, the stone of humanitarian crises, the stone of human rights violations, the stone of human trafficking, and other stones as well. Like the women disciples of Jesus, we ask one another: “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” (cf. Mk 16:3).

This is the amazing discovery of that Easter morning: The stone, the immense stone, was rolled away. The astonishment of the women is our astonishment as well: The tomb of Jesus is open, and it is empty! From this, everything begins anew! A new path leads through that empty tomb: The path that none of us, but God alone, could open: the path of life in the midst of death, the path of peace in the midst of war, the path of reconciliation in the midst of hatred, the path of fraternity in the midst of hostility.

Brothers and sisters, Jesus Christ is risen! He alone has the power to roll away the stones that block the path to life. He, the living One, is himself that path. He is the Way: the way that leads to life, the way of peace, reconciliation, and fraternity. He opens that path, humanly impossible, because he alone takes away the sin of the world and forgives us our sins. For without God’s forgiveness, that stone cannot be removed. Without the forgiveness of sins, there is no overcoming the barriers of prejudice, mutual recrimination, the presumption that we are always right and others wrong. Only the risen Christ, by granting us the forgiveness of our sins, opens the way for a renewed world.

Jesus alone opens up before us the doors of life, those doors that continually we shut with the wars spreading throughout the world. Today we want, first and foremost, to turn our eyes to the holy city of Jerusalem, that witnessed the mystery of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and to all the Christian communities of the Holy Land.

I appeal once again that access to humanitarian aid be ensured to Gaza, and call once more for the prompt release of the hostages seized on 7 October last and for an immediate cease-fire in the Strip.

Let us not allow the current hostilities to continue to have grave repercussions on the civil population, by now at the limit of its endurance, and above all on the children. How much suffering we see in the eyes of the children: The children in those lands at war have forgotten how to smile! With those eyes, they ask us: Why? Why all this death? Why all this destruction? War is always an absurdity, war is always a defeat! Let us not allow the strengthening winds of war to blow on Europe and the Mediterranean. Let us not yield to the logic of weapons and rearming. Peace is never made with arms, but with outstretched hands and open hearts.

Brothers and sisters, let us not forget Syria, which for 13 years has suffered from the effects of a long and devastating war. So many deaths and disappearances, so much poverty and destruction call for a response on the part of everyone, and of the international community.

My thoughts turn today in a special way to Lebanon, which has for some time experienced institutional impasse and a deepening economic and social crisis, now aggravated by the hostilities on its border with Israel. May the risen Lord console the beloved Lebanese people and sustain the entire country in its vocation to be a land of encounter, coexistence, and pluralism.

I also think in particular of the region of the Western Balkans, where significant steps are being taken toward integration in the European project. May ethnic, cultural, and confessional differences not be a cause of division but rather a source of enrichment for all of Europe and for the world as a whole.

I likewise encourage the discussions taking place between Armenia and Azerbaijan, so that, with the support of the international community, they can pursue dialogue, assist the displaced, respect the places of worship of the various religious confessions, and arrive as soon as possible at a definitive peace agreement.

May the risen Christ open a path of hope to all those who in other parts of the world are suffering from violence, conflict, food insecurity, and the effects of climate change. May the Lord grant consolation to the victims of terrorism in all its forms. Let us pray for all those who have lost their lives and implore the repentance and conversion of the perpetrators of those crimes.

May the risen Lord assist the Haitian people, so that there can soon be an end to the acts of violence, devastation, and bloodshed in that country, and that it can advance on the path to democracy and fraternity.

May Christ grant consolation and strength to the Rohingya, beset by a grave humanitarian crisis, and open a path to reconciliation in Myanmar, torn for years now by internal conflicts, so that every logic of violence may be definitively abandoned.

May the Lord open paths of peace on the African continent, especially for the suffering peoples in Sudan and in the entire region of the Sahel, in the Horn of Africa, in the region of Kivu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and in the province of Capo Delgado in Mozambique, and bring an end to the prolonged situation of drought, which affects vast areas and provokes famine and hunger.

May the Risen One make the light of his face shine upon migrants and on all those who are passing through a period of economic difficulty, and offer them consolation and hope in their moment of need. May Christ guide all persons of goodwill to unite themselves in solidarity, in order to address together the many challenges that loom over the poorest families in their search for a better life and happiness.

On this day when we celebrate the life given us in the resurrection of the Son, let us remember the infinite love of God for each of us: a love that overcomes every limit and every weakness. And yet how much the precious gift of life is despised! How many children cannot even be born? How many die of hunger and are deprived of essential care or are victims of abuse and violence? How many lives are made objects of trafficking for the increasing commerce in human beings?

Brothers and sisters, on the day when Christ has set us free from the slavery of death, I appeal to all who have political responsibilities to spare no efforts in combatting the scourge of human trafficking, by working tirelessly to dismantle the networks of exploitation, and to bring freedom to those who are their victims. May the Lord comfort their families, above all those who anxiously await news of their loved ones, and ensure them comfort and hope.

May the light of the Resurrection illuminate our minds and convert our hearts, and make us aware of the value of every human life, which must be welcomed, protected, and loved.

A happy Easter to all!

 

The King Prince Charles Easter message 2024

Transcript Prince Charles said

“Ladies and Gentlemen, it is, for me, a great sadness that I cannot be with you all today. The Maundy Service has a very special place in my heart. It has its origin in the life of Our Lord who knelt before his disciples and, to their great surprise, washed their travel-weary feet. And, as we have just heard, in doing so he deliberately gave to them and to us all an example of how we should serve and care for each other.

In this country we are blessed by all the different services that exist for our welfare. But over and above these organizations and their selfless staff, we need and benefit greatly from those who extend the hand of friendship to us, especially in a time of need.

This act of worship, here in Worcester Cathedral, reminds me of the pledge I made at the beginning of the Coronation Service – to follow Christ’s example ‘not to be served but to serve’. That I have always tried to do and continue to do, with my whole heart.

It is my special prayer today that Our Lord’s example of serving one another might continue to inspire us and to strengthen all our communities.

May God bless you all this Easter.”
