Gregorian calendar Easter celebrated



BELGRADE -- Christians who mark their holidays according to the Gregorian calendar are today celebrating Easter.The Catholic Archbishop of Belgrade Stanislav Hočevar said in his Easter message that "man has never been less free, although technological advancement and connecting the world have been achieved, but only with the faith in Jesus Christ can man find the right way"."And while systems are getting stronger, the master of the systems, man, is becoming ever weaker, a slave to his own inventions, mostly without a hope," the archbishop said. Hočevar also congratulated Easter to the country's majority Orthodox Serbs. The Serbian Orthodox Church, along with the Russian Orthodox Church and the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, will celebrate Easter on April 19.
