While Washington D.C. is engulfed with tension since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final redacted report, some in our nation’s capital are putting aside time to celebrate the Christian holiday, Good Friday, in remembrance of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.

Vice President Mike Pence shared that he and his wife, Karen, are joining “Christians everywhere in remembering the sacrifice made for us on the Cross.”

Pence tweeted from the Book of Isaiah in the Bible, verse 53:5: “He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”

The U.S. first lady Melania Trump also took part in remembering the importance of Good Friday for Christians around the world.

“Many blessings to all around the world celebrating,” she tweeted.

Pope Francis sent out a message to all on this day of remembrance:

Other congressional leaders in the U.S. expressed their message on Good Friday.

“By His sacrifice we are made new!” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweeted.

Good Friday is expressed in numerous different ways across the globe, such as art in the streets of Central America countries, egg cracking traditions in Jamaica, Catholic churches in Rome covering every statue and crosses in churches, and the Good Friday torchlight procession led by the Pope in Rome, as CNN reported.
