Myanmar's most senior Catholic, Cardinal Charles Bo, also shared an Easter message on Twitter: "Jesus has risen: Hallelujah - Myanmar will rise again!"
Myanmar has been gripped by turmoil since a Feb 1 coup ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and derailed the country's tentative transition to democracy.
While Myanmar locals have been struggling to restore peace in the country amid the military coup, Beijing has been accused of reducing the scope of negotiated texts each time.
The coup reversed years of slow progress toward democracy in Myanmar, which for five decades languished under strict military rule that led to worldwide isolation and sanctions. Numerous eggs also bore a drawing of the three-fingered salute, a symbol of resistance to the February 1 coup.
"They shot him at the roadside. They took away his dead body this morning at 6 a.m.", an eye witness told AFP.
"The military junta's widespread use of arbitrary arrests and enforced disappearances appears created to strike fear in the hearts of anti-coup protesters", said Brad Adams, Human Rights Watch's Asia director.
In Pyay, a town in Bago region, people plastered photos of Myanmar children killed since early February on a billboard and on fences.
Despite the violence, French oil and gas group Total said it would not stop producing gas on its Yadana fields in Myanmar as long as operations remained safe.
In a newspaper column due to be published in France's Journal du Dimanche on Sunday, Total chief executive Patrick Pouyanne said the group had several reasons to keep its offshore Yadana site going.
Total has halted new projects and drilling in Myanmar in response to the crisis, and Mr Pouyanne said the group was "appalled by the repressive action taking place".
While he said he was "outraged by the repression" in Myanmar, he said they wouldn't "act to the detriment of our local employees and the Burmese population who are already suffering so much".
With its economy contracting under pressure from mass disruptions in reaction to the coup and from the pandemic, Myanmar's military leaders are expected to order an increase in the money supply by the central bank.
CNN has reached out to the Myanmar military for comment on the reported detentions.
Total paid about $230 million to the Myanmar authorities in 2019 and $176 million in 2020 in taxes and "production rights", according to the company's financial statements.
But he said Total rejected calls to put the taxes into an escrow account, saying it could put local managers at risk of arrest or imprisonment.
At least 2,658 civilians are in detention across the country, according to AAPP.
Authorities have also issued arrest warrants for almost 40 celebrities known for opposing military rule, including social media influencers, singers, and models, under a law against inciting dissent in the armed forces.
Fighting has also flared in the north between the army and ethnic Kachin insurgents.
In a statement issued on Sunday, the groups demanded an end to the bloodshed, called for the release of political prisoners and expressed support for the ongoing civil disobedience movement.
"We have signed a nationwide ceasefire agreement".
In areas controlled by the Karen, more than a dozen civilians have been killed since Saturday and more than 20,000 have been displaced, according to the Free Burma Rangers, a relief agency operating in the area.
About 300 Myanmar citizens, some wearing their ethnic group's traditional costumes, protested on Sunday in Thailand's northern city of Chiang Mai against a lack of global intervention in Myanmar's crisis.
