      Church leader wants Christians to celebrate Easter on same day

      Rome (ENI). Lebanon-based Armenian Orthodox leader Aram I has at a Vatican
      meeting with Pope Benedict XVI proposed that the world's churches set a
      common date for Easter, when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
      "There are no special doctrinal problems to achieve this goal, but only
      problems of the calendar," Aram, who heads the Catholicosate of Cilicia of
      the Armenian Apostolic Church, told journalists in Rome at the end of his
      23-27 November visit to Rome. In most years, Christians celebrate Easter on
      two different dates. One is marked by most Protestants and Roman Catholics,
      and the other by most Orthodox churches. [417 words, ENI-08-0971]
