A Common Date for Easter?
Wednesday, March 23th, 2016 - In May of 2014, Pope Tawadros II of the Coptic Orthodox Church sent a letter to Pope Francis. In it he expressed his desire to establish a single date for all Christian Churches to celebrate Easter. Since the 16th century the Catholic and Orthodox churches have used different calendars to calculate the date of Easter. But in modern times as Christian persecution has become rampant in many parts of the world, Christians are seeing more of what they have—and should have—in common. Join us for a new episode of Perspectives: The Weekly Edition with guest host Sebastian Gomes and Fr. Peter Galadza, a liturgist from the Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church as they discuss the potential establishment of a common date of Easter and the implications for unity among the Christian churches.
