Biden Issues Good Wishes On Orthodox Christian Easter Day

On Sunday, President Joe Biden issued a statement (full text) extending warm wishes from himself and the First Lady to their friends in the Orthodox Christian community observing Easter on that day. The statement said in part:

This is also a season of remembrance—to honor the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for the world and to stand in solidarity with all those in the Orthodox community who have been persecuted for their faith and those who remain under threat today.
