The Lord is risen, indeed!

Wishing all here a joyous feast of the resurrection.  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.

Khristos voskrese!  Voistinu voskrese!

Now THAT is my kind of Church!  Christ is Risen!
Unfortunately, no Cognac or Scotch, since my church forbids the consumption of distilled liquors on parish property for liability reasons. Sad  Oh, well.  The pipe-weed was good.  Made me feel like a regular old hobbit.

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

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:

Indeed, He is Risen!

 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!
