CHRIST IS RISEN!  INDEED HE IS RISEN!

Pascha......

 

The Glorious Resurrection of Christ, is celebrated by the Holy Orthodox Church as the greatest of all feastdays.  It is the Feast of Feasts, and celebration of celebrations.  This is the day (Pascha) on which is accomplished our passage from death to life and from earth to Heaven.  (Passover)  

 

The gospel reading during the Divine Liturgy is the first seventeen verses of the Gospel of St. John.  The proclamation of the Word of God takes the faithful back again to the beginning, and announces God’s creation and re-creation of the world through the living Word of God, His Son Jesus Christ.

 

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD...ALL THINGS WERE MADE THROUGH HIM...IN HIM WAS LIFE AND THE LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF MEN...AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH....

 

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the tombs bestowing life.

 

CHRIST IS RISEN!  INDEED HE IS RISEN!
