President Yoon Suk Yeol attended an Easter service at church Sunday and stressed the need to practice love and solidarity in the spirit of the Christian celebration, according to his office.

In his remarks during the service at Myungsung Presbyterian Church in eastern Seoul, Yoon said that at a time when the country is faced with serious challenges within and outside, everyone should reflect on and practice the true meaning of Easter.

Noting that Jesus showed the infinite love of freeing humanity from sin through his crucifixion and resurrection, he said the path to realizing the true meaning of Easter would be by practicing the spirit of love and solidarity so that everyone can enjoy true freedom.

Yoon further promised that together with the government, he will more humbly step into the people's lives and listen to even their softest voices and warmly look after and support those in difficulty to help them regain their strength.

Earlier in the day, he wrote a message on Facebook, saying, "I hope this Easter will be a day to reflect on and practice Jesus' love for humanity." (Yonhap)
