Paschal Greeting from the Abbot of Sretensky Monastery

We celebrate the death of death, the destruction of hades,
the beginning of another life eternal.

Paschal canon, Ode 7

“We celebrate the death of death, the destruction of hades, the beginning of another life eternal, and leaping for joy, we hymn the Cause, the only blessed and most glorious God of our fathers.”

The Holy Church pronounces these exultant words on the bright Paschal night.

Dear brothers and sisters, readers of Pravoslavie.ru English!

What can we add to these ancient words, so filled with the confirmation of eternal joy?

Only this:

CHRIST IS RISEN!

IN TRUTH HE IS RISEN!

Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov)
and the brothers of Sretensky Monastery
