President Nelson issues special Easter invitation on Palm Sunday
President Nelson invites all to feel ‘the peace and hope of Easter’ by focusing on the Savior
While President Russell M. Nelson was traveling to an assignment several years ago, the right engine of the plane he was on suddenly exploded. Flaming fuel spewed all over the right side, and the plane spiraled toward the earth.
In a video released on Palm Sunday 2021 March 28, Prophet Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invites people everywhere to focus on Jesus Christ this Easter.
During the week leading up to Easter, the Church president asks the world to “make this coming week truly holy by remembering—not just the palms that were waved to honor the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem—but by remembering the palms of His hands.” In Isaiah 49:16 of the Old Testament are the words, “Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands”—a promise, President Nelson says, that “[Christ] will never forget you.”
President Nelson also invites people to “do something this week to follow [Jesus Christ’s] teachings. You might make your prayers more earnest. You could forgive someone or help a friend in need. You can start today on a new spiritual quest.”
Those looking for a place of worship on Easter are invited to watch the virtual sessions of the Church’s Easter Sunday general conference, the prophet says. “[The conference] will be filled with Christ-centered messages and music. … Let us worship and praise Him for the peace, hope, light, and truth He brings to us.”
