The Resurrection

A. The "First" Resurrection

On Holy Saturday morning we proclaim: "Arise O God and judge Thou the earth; for Thou shall take all heathen to Thine inheritance".

B. The Resurrection

On Holy Saturday evening the Light is coming out from the Tomb of our Lord - from the Holy Sanctuary of the Church. We sing: "Come ye and receive light from the unwaning Light; and glorify Christ, Who has risen from the dead".

Then we celebrate the actual Resurrection, by proclaiming: "Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the tombs bestowing life!".

C. The "Second" Resurrection
On Easter Sunday afternoon we share with all people around the world the message of Resurrection. At a special Service, called "Vespers of Love" we read the Gospel in many languages. In our Church we read it in nine (9) languages.
