Watch: What the Man Who Carried Christ's Cross Can Teach Us About Easter

For Holy Week, LDS Living is preparing for Easter in two simple ways: 1) by focusing on the events leading up to Easter on our Instagram account @brightly.beams and 2) by releasing a video a day focusing on the perspective of those who witnessed the life and resurrection of our Savior. Here is the second of our videos (watch the first here), featuring Emily Belle Freeman and David Butler of Don't Miss This as they explain what we can learn about Easter and our Savior from Simon, the mysterious character who carried the cross of Christ. Come back tomorrow to learn about Joseph and Nicodemus.
