To the Very Reverend and Reverend Clergy, Monastics, and Faithful of the Orthodox Church in America:
It is the day of Resurrection! Let us be illumined, O ye people! Pascha! The Pascha of the Lord from death to life and from earth to heaven has Christ our God led us, as we sing a song of victory. (Paschal Canon, Ode I)
CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED HE IS RISEN!
