HOLY PASCHA: The Resurrection of Our Lord

HOLY PASCHA: The Resurrection of Our Lord
A MESSAGE FROM ABBESS MELANIA
Sunday, April 24, 2022 - Great and Holy Pascha

Christ is risen!

This is the day of resurrection. Let us be illumined by the feast. Let us embrace each other. Let us call "brothers" even those that hate us, and forgive all by the resurrection, and so let us cry:

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


It always grabs my attention that the Paschal verses end with a call to forgive all by the resurrection and THEN cry “Christ is risen ...”  The longer I live, the more I realize how incapable I am of forgiving others fully - EXCEPT by the love and power of the Resurrected Christ.  And until I’m willing to do that – or at least begin the process – how can I think that I am really celebrating Christ’s Resurrection!  So, may we all forgive each other by Christ’s Resurrection and cry with pure hearts, “Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tomb bestowing life!”
