In a story March 30 about President Barack Obama's weekly radio and Internet address, The Associated Press incorrectly identified the congressman who delivered the weekly Republican address. He is Rep. Lee Terry of Nebraska, not Terry Lee.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Obama: Easter, Passover a time to pray, reflect

Obama: Easter, Passover time to recommit to loving neighbors, seeing others as God's children


Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is wishing a joyful Easter to those who celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the Easter and Passover holidays give millions of Christians, Jews and people of other faiths a chance to slow down and recommit themselves to loving their neighbors and seeing everyone as a child of God.

Jews celebrated Passover at sundown on Monday. Easter is Sunday.

In the Republican address, Rep. Lee Terry of Nebraska called for approval of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline to bring oil from Canada's tar sands to Texas Gulf Coast refineries. Terry says the project would help create tens of thousands of jobs.

The Obama administration is considering whether to approve the project, which would run through Terry's home state.
