Grace, Peace and Mercy of the Resurrected Savior Christ!
The Most Dear Ones in the Lord,
We celebrate the death of death,
the destruction of hell,
the beginning of other, eternal life.
And leaping for joy, we celebrate the Cause,
the only blessed and most glorious God of our fathers.
(The Paschal Canon, Ode 7)
We pray that God may bless your efforts and good works, granting you the tranquility that comes from the certainty that only the victory over death establishes life, transforms the common yeast of corruption into the heavenly Bread, and makes our homeland a loving prefiguring of the coming City.
May the the light of the Resurrection of Christ who gives us the power not to die (Jn 11:26) and abundant gratitude toward our God Who is worshipped in Trinity, be with you and with all of yours.
Христос Васкрсе! Christ is Risen! Χριστός Ανέστη!
Indeed He is Risen!
At the Holy Pascha of our Lord, 2014
Your Intercessor before the Resurrected Christ
