Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, has sent a message to Australia’s Greek community ahead of Orthodox Easter on Sunday.

In his message, Mr Morrison stressed how this Easter will be a “day of joy” as people “give thanks with open churches and full pews.”

Full Message:

Greetings to all Orthodox Christians who are celebrating Easter.

The meaning of Easter is found in three words: He is Risen!

It is the day when light triumphed over darkness and when Christians can declare “Where, O death, is your victory? Where O death is your sting?”

Like Christians everywhere, I see love expressed in the cross of Calvary and hope expressed in the empty tomb. This is the faith we share.

This year Easter will be especially joyous, as Christians of all denominations give thanks with open churches and full pews on this holiest of days. Again we can sing the joyous songs of our faith.

This Easter is a day of joy – and one where we give thanks for all our blessings.

May Orthodox Christians across Australia experience the Risen Christ’s presence and peace this Resurrection Sunday!

The Hon Scott Morrison MP

Prime Minister of Australia
