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!
