Happy Easter to all who celebrated Easter today, “Christos Anesti” to all of my Greek friends and family. To all of my non-Greek friends, that means “Christ is risen”. In fact, should you have any friends or co-workers who are Greek or Eastern Othodox, take a minute, stop and say “hello” and then say “Christos Anesti”. The will be very appreciative, in fact they should answer with “Alithos”. Which means, “Indeed he has”.
Xrona Polla everyone.
“O Lord Jesus Christ, who upon this day did conquer death and rise from the dead, and who are alive for ever more, help us never to forget your Risen Presence forever with us.
Help us to remember,
That you are with us in every time of perplexity to guide and to direct;
That you are with us in every time of sorrow to comfort and console;
That you are with us in every time of temptation to strengthen and to inspire;
That you are with us in every time of loneliness to cheer and befriend;
That you are with us even in death to bring us to the glory of your side.
Make us to be certain that there is nothing in time or in eternity which can separate us from you,so that in your presence we may meet life with gallantry and death without fear.
You turn our darkness into light, in your light we shall see light.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Christ the Lord is risen today!
