Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As we approach and celebrate the Feast of Feasts and the Holy Day of Holy Days – the day which knows no evening, I offer the following words from the Paschal Verses:
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 tombs bestowing life!
