Visit # 171 ~ The Feast of Feasts

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.  

Here is a video, part of our procession around the Church.

Lots of good eats at three in the morning!

Christ is Risen!
Truly, He is Risen!


  1. He is risen indeed! I hope your Bright Week is blessed, and the whole Paschal season. Thanks for the video - I love it.

  2. I haven't been able to go to any Bright Week services but I still "feel" the high of the Pascha Vigil and the joy of the Ressurrection!
