New Delhi: Christians across India and other parts of the world took part in midnight masses and celebrations are to continue through the day that marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Pope will also deliver his message later on Sunday afternoon at the Vatican's mass.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh greeted the people of the nation on Easter. The Prime Minister said in his message said the universal significance of Christ's resurrection is that truth triumphs over evil and love is stronger than hatred.

Easter is the celebration of compassion and fellowship and the hope of a better tomorrow, he said, wishing the festivities strengthen the bonds of unity and brotherhood among the people in the country.
