Pascha!

It is a bit later in the day than when I normally like to post, however, given that I didn't even get to sleep until after 3AM due to the Pascha celebrations I think the time evens out.




Obviously, today is Pascha! Today is the day when Orthodox Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus (along with every other Sunday). We started the celebration last night with the Divine Liturgy, and ended it this morning some time after 1:30.

Now we proclaim loudly, "Christ is Risen! Indeed, He is Risen!" And we sing "Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death. And upon those in the tomb, bestowing life!"

Christ is Risen! Indeed, He is Risen!
Χριστός Ανέστη! Αληθώς Ανέστη!
Tha Crìosd air èiridh! Gu dearbh, tha e air èiridh!
Tá Críost éirithe! Go deimhin, tá sé éirithe!

Christus Resurrexit! Vere Resurrexit!
Cristo è risorto! È veramente risorto!
Христос Воскресе! Воистину Воскресе! (Khristos Voskrese! Voistinu Voskrese!)
