Christ is Risen From the Dead

Sunday of the Resurrection of the Son of God:

 

“Today all things are filled with light / earth and heaven and the world beneath. / Then let all creation celebrate / the resurrection of Christ. / In Him is the firm foundation of all things.”

“O truly blessed night,
worthy alone to know the time and hour
when Christ rose from the underworld!

This is the night
of which it is written:
The night shall be as bright as day,
dazzling is the night for me,
and full of gladness.

O truly blessed night,
when things of heaven are wed to those of earth,
and divine to the human.”

“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.”

“As it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.”
