The holiest day of the year, Pascha, is fast approaching. Orthodox Christians around the world are preparing for this joyful day.

From the article:
Quote
The congregation gathers in the church on Saturday evening and takes part in an Easter vigil commemorating the buried Christ. Orthodox churches in Russia have an inner sanctuary away from the reach of worshippers, with access for the priest only.

On this day, the door is closed until midnight, but at the stroke of midnight, the priest opens the door and comes out saying “Christ is risen! Christ is risen! Christ is risen!” and after hours of silent anticipation, the worshippers reply: “He is risen indeed!”
