It’s about 4 am. We got home from our first Pascha service about 3:30 am. It was absolutely stunning! The candles, the songs, the priest banging on the church door with the cross, the choir, the flowers. Amazing!
We sang this great song over and over throughout the service as we held our candles above our heads:
“Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tomb, bestowing life!”
Now we’re exhausted and will try to sleep for several hours and re-energize before the Agape Service at 2 pm and the Pascha party at 4 pm.
Below are a few pictures I snapped with my cell phone during the Pascha service.
And now I’m off to bed.
