Announcements for the Feast of Feasts and Bright Week, 2009

CHRIST  IS  RISEN!
INDEED  HE IS  RISEN!
Come, receive the Light
from Him Who is the Light of the World;
from Him Who is Everlasting Light;
from Him Whom the darkness of night cannot overcome;
from Him Who has shown in our hearts to give us the light
of the knowledge of the glory of God.

The angels in heaven sing of Your resurrection, O Christ our Savior; enable us on the earth to glorify You with pure hearts.

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling-down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs, bestowing Life!

CHRIST  IS  RISEN!
INDEED  HE IS  RISEN!

The angel cried to the lady full of grace: rejoice, rejoice, O pure Virgin, again I say rejoice.  Your Son has risen from his three days in the tomb.  With himself He has raised all the dead.  Rejoice, rejoice, all ye people.  Shine, shine, O New Jerusalem.  The glory of the Lord has shone on you.  Exalt and be glad, O Zion.  Be radiant, O Pure Theotokos, in the Resurrection of your Son.
