Pascha 2016

My soul magnifies Him who rose from the dead on the third day: Christ, the giver of life!

Shine, shine O new Jerusalem! The glory of the Lord has shone on you! Exult now, and be glad, O Zion! Be radiant, O pure Theotokos, in the Resurrection of your Son!

Christ, the new Pascha! The living Sacrifice! The Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world!

How divine! How beloved! How sweet is Thy voice, O Christ! For Thou hast faithfully promised to be with us, to the end of the world. Having this as our anchor of hope, we the faithful rejoice.

Mary Magdalene hastened to Thy tomb, and seeing Christ, she questioned Him as though He were the gardener.

O Christ, great and most holy Pascha! O Wisdom, Word and Power of God, grant that we may be more perfectly partake of Thee in the never ending day of Thy Kingdom.

The Angel cried to the Lady full of grace: Rejoice, rejoice, O pure virgin! Again I say rejoice! Your Son is risen from His three days in the Tomb. With himself He has raised all the dead. Rejoice, rejoice, O ye people. Shine, shine, Shine! O new Jerusalem. The glory of the Lord has shone on you. Exult now, exult, and be glad, O Zion. Be radiant, O pure Theotokos, in the Resurrection of your Son.

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life. x3
