Prince of Peace

Easter is a special time of year when all Christendom will pause to celebrate the resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ.The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is inviting the world to focus on the Principles of Peace. To find peace through the life and teachings of our Savior, 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.
