On Saturday night, 11.04.2015, we celebrated Christ’s Resurrection at  the monastery of St. Prohor Pchinski. The countless people joyfully accept the light and  the faithful partook in the Holy Gifts of Christ. In particular, the joy of the resurrection could be seen on the faces of all the children that were present.  Later, during dinner abbot Gabriel pealed the red Easter egg which was kept on the” plashtenica” from last Easter and confirmed the miracle of the Orthodox Church that the red Easter eggs which are dyed on Great Thursday do not spoil.

Christ is risen!


Truly He is risen!

The Resurrection of Christ is an event above all events.
A moment expanded into eternity and eternity distilled into a moment.
The Cross is the culmination of life.
And the Resurrection is a seal, a guarantee, promotion of the cross and Christ’s love.
He Who because of us suffered scoffing, spitting, beating, scolding and death upon the cross, could not be kept in the hell and not only that the hell could not keep Him, but it was not able to bear Him and was therefore crushed. With Christ’s descent into hell, the hell was disabled, so that everyone who believes and lives in Christ should have eternal life.
Until Christ’s Resurrection there was fear of death, but after Christ’s Resurrection, death simply turned into a passage. Pascha. Therefore, brothers and sisters, let us love Christ and accept Him with all of our hearts, because:
Christ is our God!
Christ is our love!
Christ is our reconciler!
Christ is our hope!
Christ is our life!
Christ is our everything!

Let us all assume Christ’s example and follow Him.
Let us glorify Him.
Let us forgive each other every transgression.
Let us love each other.
Let us hug one another and all together in one thought, one heart and one soul let us exclaim in a loud voice:
Christ is risen!
Truly He is risen!

This is the day of resurrection.
Let us be illumined by the feast.
Let us embrace each other.
Let us call brothers even those who hate us
And forgive all by the resurrection

Christ is risen from the dead,

Trampling down death by death,

And upon those in the tombs

Bestowing life!

The abbot of the monastery, Father Gavril celebrated this day with the following words:
Today is the day when we all appreciate and thank mother Mary, who is more honorable than the Cherubim and the Seraphim, for saying her faithful “yes” to the Lord, to bear(incarnate) in her womb the Son of God who is to save the human race. There isn’t a praise worthy enough that can express our gratitude to Her. May Her example be our example as well on how to live and love God.  Amen
