Christus Resurrexit!
« on: April 12, 2009, 10:12:40 AM »
To my dear brothers on the Catholic Calander:
Christ is risen!
May you have a most blessed Easter!

The Lord is risen, indeed.

(on the Anglican calender, too  ;) )

A blessed Easter to all who celebrate today, and an blessed Holy Week and Pascha to all those who start that path this morning.

And since also the Finnish Orthodox Church celebrates Easter today:

Kristus nousi kuolleista!
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

Is there any news report from Orthodox Easter celebrations available in English?

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

To my dear brothers on the Catholic Calander:
Ἀναστήτω ὁ Θεός, καὶ διασκορπισθήτωσαν οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ φυγέτωσαν ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ οἱ μισοῦντες αὐτόν. Ὡς ἐκλείπει καπνός, ἐκλιπέτωσαν, ὡς τήκεται κηρὸς ἀπὸ προσώπου πυρός. Οὕτως ἀπολοῦνται οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ, καὶ οἱ δίκαιοι εὐφρανθήτωσαν.

Can you possibly translate this. I am not so good with the Greek.  :D

LOL.  It might has well been Chinese, which is what always strikes me with Elipodophoros' posts.

It's Pslam 67 (68). "Let God arise..."
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
