I wish everyone a joyous feast of the Resurrection. May your Paschatide be full of happiness and wonder.

You may also watch the celebration in Beit Jala, which we visited last year on our way to Bethlehem, and in Ramallah, through which we passed on the way to Jericho. The latter story is on an Iranian site. I find the political propaganda interesting.

RIA Novosti also has some nice photographs from Christ the Savior.
