Blessed Easter

This is an Easter for the West and the East.

Christ is risen! Truly, He is risen!

ܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܡ! ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܩܡ!

המשיח קם! באמת קם!

 

Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!

Христос воскрес! Воистину воскрес!

 

Christus resurrexit! Resurrexit vere!

 

Χριστὸς ἀνέστη ἐκ νεκρῶν,
θανάτῳ θάνατον πατήσας,
καὶ τοῖς ἐν τοῖς μνήμασι,
ζωὴν χαρισάμενος!

Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Bestowing life!

 

 

Crucem sanctam subiit,
qui infernum confregit,
accinctus est potentia,
surrexit die tertia. Alleluia.

Lapidem quem reprobaverunt
aedeficantes factus est
caput anguli, alleluia.

Translation:

He bore the Holy Cross,
who broke the power of hell;
He was girded with power
He rose again the third day, alleluia

The stone that the architects rejected
became the cornerstone, alleluia.

On this day we celebrate:

  • Life conquering death
  • Truth over falsehood
  • Knowledge over deceit
  • Good over wickedness

 

Have a blessed Easter, everyone.
