On Easter Sunday we celebrate the most long-awaited and glorious event in the history of the world. It is the day that changed everything. On that day, my life changed. Your life changed. The destiny of all God’s children changed. – Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Because Jesus walked such a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to. – Jeffrey R. Holland

His Atonement makes available all of the power, peace, light, and strength that we need to deal with life’s challenges—those ranging from our own mistakes and sins to trials over which we have no control but we still feel pain. – Sheri L. Dew

Because of the Lord’s Atonement, resurrection (or immortality) became a reality. Because of the Atonement, eternal life became a possibility for all who would qualify. For the Atonement of the Lord and His gift of resurrection—for this sublime message of Easter—thanks be to God! – Russell M. Nelson

The Atonement is for you and for me. It is an enabling and a redeeming power. If you are not feeling worthy to stand in holy places, do not carry this burden one day longer. In mortality, we will all make mistakes. Be assured that the Savior loves you so much that He made it possible for you to change and to repent if you make a mistake. – Elaine S. Dalton

To understand the meaning of death, we must appreciate the purpose of life. (…) Our Father knew that because of the nature of mortality, we would be tempted, would sin, and would fall short. So that we might have every chance of success, He provided a Savior, who would suffer and die for us. – Thomas S. Monson

However late you think you are, however many chances you think you have missed, however many mistakes you feel you have made …, or however far from home and family and God you feel you have traveled, I testify that you have not traveled beyond the reach of divine love. It is not possible for you to sink lower than the infinite light of Christ’s Atonement shines. – Jeffrey R. Holland

The Atonement is the greatest evidence we have of the Father’s love for His children. – Linda K. Burton

I am profoundly grateful for the Redeemer of Easter morning, who grants us life, whose descent below all things makes possible our rising above all things-Tomorrow, if we but seize Today. – Lance B. Wickman

Brothers and sisters, Easter is a time when the Christian world focuses on the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That one moment in time changed everything forever. The Savior broke down every barrier that stood in the way of our return to a loving Heavenly Father. – M. Russell Ballard
