Pope Francis works with other Christian leaders to have a unified and fixed Easter date

Easter is one of the most important and significant festival for all Christians as it is a commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his death by crucifixion on Good Friday. And this festival have been celebrated on a different date for most christians due to the variations of denomination and churches amidst Christians.

The last officially known attempt to fix a common date for the Easter celebration was 10th Centuries ago, and it failed.

The Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Archbishop Justin Welby in an announcement of a another historic attempt to unify a fixed date for Easter after a meeting of primates from the Anglican Communion in Canterbury.

The Archbishop said he was in talks with Pope Francis, Coptic leader Pope Tawadros, and the leader of the Orthodox church Patriarch Bartholomew.

Mr Welby said he hoped the change would happen “in between five and 10 years time”.

“I would love to see it before I retired”, Archbishop Welby said.

Although in 1990, the Vatican approved a proposal for a fixed date, which was subject to agreement with other Christian churches and governments. It has not yet been reached.
