The Candle Stand in our Church, ready to be lit for Pascha

I know I get very chatty on this blog but I really can't put into words how the Pascha Vigil moved me. Yes, there were times I was tired of standing and, yest, my all-too-easily-distracted mind needed reigning in at times but, on the whole, the entire experience of Pascha was beyond words. All I can say is:
Christ is Risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death
and upon those in the tomb bestowing life!
Because I didn't work the next day, I stayed for the Pascha Agape Feast where all the faithful partook of foods they had been abstaining from. I had a really good time.
