When the stone had been sealed by the Jews;
while the soldiers were guarding Thy most pure Body;
Thou didst rise on the third day, O Savior, granting life to the world.
The powers of heaven therefore cried to Thee, O Giver of Life:
Glory to Thy Resurrection, O Christ!
Glory to Thy Kingdom! Glory to Thy dispensation,
O Thou who lovest mankind. – Troparion of the Resurrection
Blessed Easter! Christ is Risen! Alleluia!
I pray that your 50 day feast may be full of great good, joy, peace, song and the restorative power of Christ’s tender mercy.
I will post when I can this Easter season, but as end of semester is nearing, and other deadlines looming, my work load is piling.
May we all allow Mary Magdalene, Apostle to the Apostles, to lead us to seek Christ these days of triumphant joy!
