XPICTOC ANECTH!!! (CHRIST IS RISEN!!!)


(www.goarch.org)

To one and all--CHRIST IS RISEN! TRULY HE IS RISEN!


O Hades, you have been angered by encountering Him in the nether world. Hades is angered because frustrated, it is angered because it has been mocked, it is angered because it has been destroyed, it is angered because it has been reduced to naught, it is angered because it is now captive. It seized a body, and, lo! it encountered heaven; it seized the visible, and was overcome by the invisible.

O death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? Christ is risen and you are abolished. Christ is risen and the demons are cast down. Christ is risen and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen and life is freed. Christ is risen and the tomb is emptied of the dead: for Christ, being risen from the dead, has become the Leader and Reviver of those who had fallen asleep. To Him be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.

Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη! I am glad that I got to spend this Pascha with you and the Fuzz. I got so much out of Holy Week services this year. Thank you so much for pushing me to know our religion.
