On this day, Catholic world welcome Easter celebrations and Resurrection of Jesus Christ as a sign of new life, survival and hope. Catholic Christians around the world and our Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian people in homeland and diaspora welcomed Resurrection with great joy and happiness and fasting and Holy Week. Images of our people coming from the homeland were powerful to show resilience and dedication to their ancestral roots and lands. From Iraq to Syria and Lebanon hundreds of people celebrated arrival of Easter despite many challenges, difficulties and ongoing crisis in the region.
