Believers prayed during morning liturgy in the Orthodox churches in Macedonia to mark Orthodox Easter after 40 days of lent fasting. Gathered people listened to the canonical gospels of John (John 1:1-17) and Luke (Luke 1:1-8) before Holy Communion. In the message for the Orthodox Easter, Archbishop Stephen of Ohrid and Macedonia said, “Macedonian people knew that without God and without the Church would not make anything. They knew and firmly believed that only with God’s help everything can be endured and that only with God’s blessing the good for all is possible. Therefore, we, today’s children of the Macedonian Orthodox Church, we should not forget that reverence and virtuousness are two basic rules we need to act upon.”
