‘I am the resurrection and the life’


On this Easter Sunday morning, Christians across the globe are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of humanity and then, on the third day, rose again. In this photograph, taken by Gloria Edwards at Warsaw Baptist Church, the cross is swathed in purple, a symbolic depiction of the Easter season. Churches dress the cross in purple, representing the Lenten season, from Ash Wednesday until Maundy Thursday. Then on Good Friday, the cross is draped in black, symbolic of Jesus’ crucifixion; and then on Sunday,the cloth is changed to white in celebration of Resurrection Sunday Morning (Easter Sunday). The white cloth remains on the cross from Easter Sunday through Ascension Day.
