For the fourth consecutive Easter season, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is encouraging Mormons and others around the world to share hopeful messages about Jesus Christ. This year’s focus comes from the Bible’s teaching that Christ is the Prince of Peace.
“And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” —Isaiah 9:6
“We want the world to know that peace can come to all who earnestly seek the Prince of Peace,” said President Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “His is the sweet and saving message we take throughout the world — ‘my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’”
As with previous years’ messages (which have been viewed by millions), this year’s messaging initiative coincides with Holy Week—from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, April 9–16—and includes three invitations:
- Come to Christ.
- Learn principles of peace from the Prince of Peace.
- Share ways to find peace through the Savior.
Invite All to Come unto Christ
Beginning today, March 31, the “Prince of Peace” website on mormon.org will feature a two-minute video (shown above) illustrating the role of Jesus Christ as the “Prince of Peace” and inviting others to learn about eight “principles of peace.” The video will be available in 33 languages, and the website is in 29 languages.
Learn Principles of Peace from the Prince of Peace
During Holy Week, people can learn more about principles of peace. Each day, the church country website and social media pages in Europe will feature a special message about the Savior’s eternal role as our Prince of Peace.
Share Ways to Find Peace Through the Savior
These videos and related content will also be available on many of the Church's social media pages. Members are encouraged to share these videos and related content on their personal social media pages. They may also share their own personal experiences online using the #PrinceOfPeace hashtag.
