Christ Is Risen
EASTER PASTORAL MESSAGE
From Father Nicholas
Christ is Risen, my beloved brothers and Sister in Christ Crucified and Resurrected.
May the Holy Spirit of Risen Christ be with you and your families. Let us worship His Glorious Resurrection. Let us actively participate in the holy events and services of Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ our Lord.
He, the Lord and God and Risen Christ, suffered death for us and for our Salvation. He died on the Cross in order to give us life. He went down to Hell to offer life to those in Hades and came back to us, the living, on earth again resurrected from the dead to give us hope and to tell us: Death has no power. Death has been destroyed. Rejoice! I am with you. I am no longer among the dead. I am the life and the Resurrection. Those who believe in will no perish but have eternal life.
Christ is Risen! …. Indeed, He is Risen.
