ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Orthodox Christians marked Easter Sunday (April 16) with a mass led by the Custodian of the Holy Land, Father Pier Battista Pizzaballa, at Jerusalem's Holy Sepulchre. Hundreds of pilgrims came to the church in the Old City, the faith's most sacred site in Jerusalem, for a festive mass to mark the resurrection of Jesus. The Church is believed to be the site where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. The congregation in the church sang hymns during the celebration. The Easter holiday culminates on Easter Sunday when Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead, three days after being crucified.
