Orthodox Easter: ‘Christ is risen!’ Published in the Wenatchee World April 5th, 2013


A Joyful Lent to All!

“Orthodox Easter: ‘Christ is risen!’

By the Rev. Michael Shanbour, Contributing reader to the Wenatchee World

““Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!”

This simple, ancient Christian hymn is sung over and over by Orthodox Christians late into the early morning hours each year on Orthodox Christian Easter or “Pascha.” On that night, brighter than the sunniest of days, Orthodox Christians all over the world begin addressing one another joyfully with the greeting, “Christ is risen!” and with the response, “Truly, He is risen!”  Read the rest of the post here.

The Rev. Michael Shanbour is pastor of the Three Hierarchs Orthodox Christian Church, 112 N. Wenatchee Ave.
