Orthodox believers are celebrating Sunday the greatest Christian holiday – the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ – Easter, the day when Jesus Christ had proved his divine power and rose from the dead.
At midnight, the Christ’s resurrection was heralded in all churches of the Macedonian Orthodox Church-Ohrid Archbishopric (MOC-OA). Today, churches are holding Easter Sunday masses.
Orthodox believers color eggs at dawn on Great Thursday as part of a centuries-long tradition. The red color of the Orthodox Easter egg signifies the blood of Christ, its shell His three-day entombment, and its breaking His Resurrection by which the ‘egg of life’ brought forth a life, up to then unknown.
