Orthodox Church services are awesome because they last until 3 in the morning. Хрїстóсъ воскрéсе! Воистину воскресе!

Also, because our priests walk around the church hall drinking beer after the service. Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!

MELKAM FASIKA! (Blessed Pascha/Easter!) Eyesus Kristos is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

Lent was a struggle; but that's what it's for, right? If we're not struggling, we're not growing. But today we rejoice in our Christian victory, for Our Lord had the final say. Demons scatter now. The vile serpent slithers away in shame and defeat. The tomb is empty. So partake now of the pleasures of Christ, and know that hope is the faithful companion of all those who trust in Him. Rejoice! (And keep struggling! Wink)

Dear Brothers and Sisters....


Christ  is Risen!


Beannachtaí na Cásca ort!
 
Fr Ambrose


And though all feasts fully deserve their celebration and honour in
these three ways, still more does this festival; for in it is the
assembling together of the folk of heaven and earth; it is the
festival alike of the Old and the New Testament; it is the peculiar
feast of the heavenly Father; the feast of the Lord's resurrection;
the feast which surpasses all others; the honoured and venerable
festival of the people of heaven and earth, is this festival of
Easter. For many are its wonders and marvels: in it the angel passed
over the houses of the children of Israel, when he slew all the
first-born of Egypt; in it the people of Israel went forth from Egypt,
to go up to the land of promise; in it Christ arose from the dead,
after binding the devil in hell; in it the souls of the holy and
righteous of the five ages of the world came out of hell into
paradise; in it will be the famous day, the Day of Judgment.


Homily XIX, 'On the Resurrection' - The Passions and the Homilies from
Leabhar Breac (The Speckled Book. Ireland, circa 8th century)

Alithos Anesti

I guess this is random

but it was almost a stormy one for us in Sydney, the priest commented that he had conducted 40 Easter services in Oz and that this would be the first one with rain that he could recall,  :Dbut it seemed the  heavy rain stopped long enough for the Xristos Anesti and for most to run into  cars with the Holy Light.

I find it amazing that over the years  no matter how stormy the weather seemed, it always cleared up enough for the Xristos Anesti. Smiley

Truly he is risen!

This was not only my first Pascha, but my first time at my new parish, my first time at a Greek parish, and my first service with my youngest brother, who is also journeying into Orthodoxy and it was his first Pascha as well.  A very blessed evening, even if we did get out an hour before everyone else, apparently.

The Agape service this morning was beautiful as well.

My 1st Pascha too, just got home from our festial banquet---was absolutely wonderful!

Service was great, the weather held up nicely (by God's grace), & it was just amazing to see all the people.

Also, as a side blessing, we found out that we are -close- to acquiring some land to build us a bigger church!  Glory to God for that!

Very very blessed indeed!

O Holy St. Demetrius pray to God for us!

My son showed up (who is not a Christian). I went out with the other servers to help light the candles of the congregation. I started to light the first candle in the crowd and look up and it was him... Pretty cool moment.

Glory to God!

Today was the first time in seven years that all of my cousins that I grew up with were in Church together at the same time. The last time of the six of us were in Church together was at my Aunt Sophie's funeral 7 years ago. (May her Memory be Eternal!)

Although two of said cousins were baptised into the Church, and have attended Easter and Christmas over the years, they weren't raised in the faith, as their mother is a non-observant Jew. Today they came to Church because their family wasn't doing anything to mark the holiday, and they knew they had to do something to commorate the day, so they came to Church.

Glory to God for all things!

Christ is Risen!

Just wanted to add my voice as I haven't been on here much lately but was thinking fondly of this place and all the people who helped me understand Orthodox traditions that seemed very strange to me this time last year. Happy Easter to you all.

Happy Easter Liz! Hope the wedding planning is going well! Smiley

What do you mean, 3 in the morning?  We didn't finish until 3:52!  I love it!!!

Christ is Risen!  Rejoice!

3:52?  What a bunch of wusses. Wink  We had a group of guys outside the parish hall smoking pipes and cigars until about 4:30.

None for me yet either.  My stomach is having a hard enough time with the ham.  I may have to go easy on the distilled spirits for a while.

Just wanted to share a beautiful rendition of the Evlogitaria/Blessed art Thou of the Resurrection, with an excellent matching of visual icons to the lyrics.

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;

We had beer, wine, whiskey, brandy etc, all at church.

O you Jews, come and join us to celebrate the Lord's Pascha because the true Temple of God was re-built by God Himself on the third day of its destruction!!!

Amain amain!

Just came across a rather interesting icon of the resurrection:

 Wow, so much symbolism!  The article is also educational in that the author wrote that, "The actual moment of the Resurrection, when Christ rose from the grave, was not to be depicted in Orthodox iconography. Only from the late 16th century onwards this event starts to appear on icons under the influence of the West."

Christ is Risen! Nothing else matters!

Truly He is Risen!

And how deeply I agree with you in this, nothing else matters!
