May the Light of Christ shine on all this Paschal season!

We revel in the Resurrection for 40 days, chanting hymns that declare Christ's triumph over death for us:

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

Not "bestowed" but ever "bestowing" life, and not simply a better temporal life, but an immeasurably blessed eternal life in communion with our Creator and those who love Him.

To inherit this life, "let us arise in the deep dawn, and instead of myrrh, offer prayers to the Master." This upcoming Sunday we celebrate the Myrrh-bearers and our parish sisterhood named in their honor, and we should follow their example in coming at the first available opportunity to Him, to Church services, to the doing of everything good, and to love of those near us. May we make this holy feast of holy feasts a joy to the Lord, our guardian angel, our patron saint, and to all the hosts of heaven by joining the chorus of those who confess the Risen Christ!
