Mormons sustain Thomas S. Monson and his two counselors, Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uchtdorf as prophets, seers and revelators, and refer to this body as the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -- the highest governing body in the Church. At this Easter season, they have issued the following Easter Message, to the world, via the LDS Newsroom:

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) joins with the rest of the Christian world this week in celebrating Easter and remembering the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Church’s First Presidency issued this Easter message:

This is the season of the year when the Christian world remembers the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Out of love for His Father and for us, the Savior allowed Himself to suffer beyond the capacity of mortal man. He said, "Which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit — and would that I might not drink the bitter cup and shrink — Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men" (Doctrine and Covenants 19:18-19).

Our Savior broke the bands of death. Through His Resurrection there is assurance that life is everlasting. Our Lord and Savior is the living witness that such is so.

As special witnesses, we declare that God does live. Jesus Christ is His Son, the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh. He is our Redeemer, our Mediator with the Father. Jesus Christ atoned for our sins. He became the firstfruits of the Resurrection. Because He died, all shall live again.

The First Presidency,

Thomas S. Monson
Henry B. Eyring
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The Church also produced “He Is Risen,” a new video about the Resurrection of the Savior.
