Leavetaking of Pascha
Tonight at church we have a short service, Matins for Leavetaking of Pascha. It's the last time we will sing all the wonderful jubilant Paschal hymns, and cry, "Christ is risen!" many times. Tomorrow is the actual day, followed quickly by Ascension.
In this icon you see our Lord bestowing life on those in the tombs, delivering souls from hell, "trampling down death by death."
I'm so glad to be able to attend, and feast my soul on these fundamental glad tidings. Christ is risen, indeed!
