The leaders of Saint Lucia’s two main political parties have expressed peace and love in their Easter messages, posted on their respective Facebook pages on Sunday, April 1, 2018.
Prime Minister and Political Leader of the ruling United Workers Party (UWP), Allen Chastanet, called for world peace in his message.
He wrote: “From a young age we learn about Easter: a time when Christians experienced extreme sadness and then overwhelming joy. Today, on Easter Sunday we recognize the suffering and sacrifice that led to new hope and inspiration for the world.
“As I wish you and your family a Happy and Safe Easter, I would also like to join other world leaders in the call for peace around the world. A call to remember the humanity in us all that can make the world and Saint Lucia a better place.
“On behalf of my family, I wish you all a Blessed holiday filled with the love of your family and friends. However you celebrate today be safe and spread the message of unconditional love and peace of Easter. Happy Easter and God bless you all.”
Leader of the Opposition and Political Leader of the main opposition St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP), Philip J. Pierre, wrote: “May the spirit of Love and Peace fill your homes as you reflect on the sacrifice of the Lord through his Son. He is risen! Happy Easter. Bonne fête de Pâques Bonne journée”
