Millions of Christians worldwide are celebrating the most important holiday of their faith, Easter Sunday, when they pay tribute to their belief in the resurrection of Christ after his death by crucifixion.

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia delivered his traditional Easter address to hundreds of Orthodox believers gathered at Russia’s main Orthodox church, Christ the Savior Cathedral, which was rebuilt in late 1990s after being demolished in 1931.

The patriarch called on the faithful to show care for those who desperately need support and help.

“The path of the Savior is the path of love, on which the person turns from concentrating exclusively on himself to those who need our help and support,” the head of the Russian Orthodox Church said.

“While following this path, we get to know the mystery of human happiness that God reveals to us, which is hidden in the sacrificial, unconditional, and all-forgiving love affirmed by the Savior on the cross and which must be reflected in our lives,” Patriarch Kirill added.
