President Obama produced a video message for Christians and Jews who celebrated Passover and Easter. Along with a Passover Seder he and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted at the White House on Friday night, the president said,
Sunday is Easter: The day of prayer and salvation; of renewal and ultimate redemption. Michelle, Malia, Sasha and I will spend the day reflecting on the sacrifice of God’s only son, who endured agony on the cross so that we could live together with him. And along with our fellow churchgoers and Christians, inspired by the miracle of His resurrection, we will challenge ourselves to be better. To love more deeply, and to serve the least of these as an expression of Christ’s love here on earth.
