Vere Surrexit!

"Et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas"
-the Nicene Creed

May the peace and joy of the Risen Christ be with you and yours. May the glory and splendor of this day radiate within you and inflame you with the ineffable love of the human God. For truly, Christ the Lord is risen from the dead, and has trampled it beneath His mighty heel. The angelic hosts rejoice, the whole universe rejoices and stands in awe before this most awesome mystery-- how the Uncreated took on dust and ash became as one like the created, and how the Invincible and the Almighty succumbed to mortal sleep-- and rose, a victorious conqueror, bringing desolation to desolation itself. Christ the Lord draws all the world to Himself; let us heed His call and worship Him. Christ has risen from the dead; nothing else matters. But had He not, then truly, nothing else matters.
