Christ is risen indeed!

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall hear; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb shall speak clearly. (Isaiah 35:5-6a) . . . . “for you who fear my name the Sun of righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings, You shall go forth leaping as little calves released from their bonds.” (Malachi 3:20)

Today is Pascha, the Feast of feasts, in which we celebrate the resurrection of Christ, as well as our own, for in Christ’s resurrection is our resurrection. As He arose with a transformed body which could both eat fish and enter through closed doors, we will one day rise with bodies free of disabilities and limitations. Glory to Thee, our God, Glory to Thee! Quotations from The Orthodox Study Bible:

Today is the Day of Resurrection! Let us shine with the Feast! Let us embrace one another. Let us say, brethren! And because of the Resurrection, let us forgive all things to those who hate us, and in this wise, exclaim: Christ is risen from the dead trampling down death by death and upon those in the tombs bestowing life. (Doxastikon from the Paschal Orthros)
