Same Easter?

Lebanon-based Armenian Orthodox leader Aram I urged Pope Benedict XVI to consider a common date for Easter, saying it is a calendar, not doctrinal, issue.

Although some years (i.e., 2001, 2004, 2010) Easter falls on the same date, most Orthodox celebrate it according to the Julian calendar established in 46 B.C.

Most Protestants and Roman Catholics celebrate it according to the Gregorian calendar, which replaced the Julian calendar in the 16th century.
