WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama is marking the Easter holiday and Jewish Passover, calling it a "time to celebrate redemption at God's hand."

Obama says in his weekly radio and Internet address the holidays help connect Americans to their past and "give us strength as we face the future." Obama says for Christians, Easter weekend is a time to reflect and rejoice about "the things that matter most."

In the Republican address, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin says the Obama administration is taking credit for energy production in the U.S. while "it works to aggressively undermine it."

Fallin says the energy crisis is connected to a "lack of leadership" that starts at the top. She says Republicans will push for more domestic energy production.
