Christ is Risen!

Resurreciton Icon

From today for 40 days we’ll be singing:

Christ is risen from the grave. Trampling down death by death. And upon those in the tomb bestowing life!

Another of my favorites is this:

Shine! Shine! O New Jersalem! The Glory of the Lord has shone on you. Exult and be glad O Zion. Be radiant O pure Theotokos in the resurrection of your Son.

Pascha (Easter) is the greatest of the Church Feasts. Had Christ not risen from the grave our salvation could not be complete. He has triumphed over Death! He has secured for us the Victory!

Christ is Risen from the Dead!  Have a blessed and wonderful Feast Day
