President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden released an Easter video on Sunday in which the president insisted Americans get vaccinated against COVID-19, calling it a “moral obligation.”
The Easter video, posted on the president’s official Twitter account, references God, Pope Francis, and the New Testament, but it does not mention Jesus.
“We share the sentiments of Pope Francis, who has declared that getting vaccinated is a moral obligation, which can save your life and the lives of others,” said the president. “By getting ourselves vaccinated and by encouraging your congregations and communities to get vaccinated, we can not only defeat this virus, we can also hasten the day when we can celebrate the holidays together.”
The president stressed that “the virus is not gone” and noted that many continue to experience difficulties due to the pandemic.

“As we celebrate this most holy day, we know that a lot is still going without the usual comforts of the season,” he said. “The virus is not gone, and many of us still feel the longing and loneliness of distance. For a second year, most will be separated from their families, friends, the full congregations that fill us with joy. “
But the Bidens have expressed optimism that Easter presents hope for better times.

“And yet, as the Gospel of John reminds us, the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it,” the president said.
Ms. Biden said: “The traditions of Holy Week take us on a journey from pain to salvation, reminding us that with faith, hope and love anything is possible.”
