Christ is Risen!
Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered and let them that hate Him flee from before His face.
A sacred Pascha today hath been shown unto us, a Pascha new and holy, a Pascha mystical, a Pascha all venerable, a Pascha that is Christ the Redeemer; a Pascha immaculate, a great Pascha; a Pascha of the faithful; a Pascha that hath opened the gates of Paradise unto us; a Pascha that doth sanctify all the faithful.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages Amen.
It is the day of Resurrection; let us be radiant for the festival, and let us embrace one another. Let us say, 0 brethren, even to those that hate us: Let us forgive all things on the Resurrection; and thus let us cry: Christ is risen from the dead, by death He has trampled down death, and on those in the tombs He has bestowed life.
