Christ is Risen!
« on: April 23, 2011, 08:50:00 PM »
It seems we don't have one of these threads yet and I had no idea where to put this one. Mods, please feel free to move/rename/add tags/&c.

I thought we could share our Paschal greetings and joy in the Lord's resurrection in this thread.

This is the day of resurrection. Let us be radiant and embrace one another. Let us forgive all things in the resurrection and proclaim that Christ is risen from the dead, by death trampling upon death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!

A truly blessed and perfect Pascha to you all, my new brothers and sisters in the Lord.
The Episcopallian road is easy and wide, for many go through it to find destruction. lol sorry channeling Isa.

Христос Воскресе! Воистину Воскресе!

Just home from my first Pascha as an Orthodox Christian (Russian time zone beats you all to it  ;D)! Wow! What and amazing experience this Great Lent has been, what a Holy Week! What a Pascha! Wow! Glory to God!

I have a little video of our Pascha Procession, the circle around the church, but I have no clue how to upload it.

Blessings to all!

In Christ,
Jim

It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

Воистину Воскресе! A blessed Pascha to you and your family, Nikolai!

We're even further ahead of you in Australia -- it's like being in the future.

I would love to see your video.

Haha! You got me beat! Anyone know how to upload a small clip? It's a rough clip, but just a HUGE crowd, and the singing is wonderful.
As an aside, I forgot to mention that my dear wife, 5 months pregnant, going through 2.5 hours of Liturgy this AM, and then 11pm-330am for Pascha tonight, is my hero.

Христос Воскрес!

Christ is Risen!  Indeed He is Risen!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
