Bright Week Epistle

 

Dearly beloved brothers and sisters,

+ Christ is Risen! + Христос Воскресе! + Χριστός Ανέστη! +

It was a tremendous blessing to see so many of us come together in the deep darkness of the night to receive the light of eternal life and become filled with the all-consuming joy of this great feast!

The night of Holy Pascha is unlike any other night. Just as the rays of the sun illumine us and shine upon the whole of the world, so too do the rays of this feast enlighten all of our members with its special warmth, which burns up all bitterness and sorrow. The whole world seems to be transformed, as the darkness of sin is replaced with the fire of God’s Love. CHRIST IS RISEN! 

We wish to thank everyone for their joy and their labors of love that adorned our church! People came to polish the brass, clean the grounds, prepare the hall, and adorn the temple with flowers. Our choir rehearsed and sang heartfelty. Others baked bread, cooked eggs, and prepared delicious food for the feast. May our loving and generous Lord receive each and all of your offerings to His Church! Christ is Risen, brothers and sisters! May this great feast fill our hearts with its brightness and unconquerable joy, always, now, and forever!

With Love in The Resurrected Lord,

Fr. Spyridon,

Fr. Peter,

Dn. Matthew
