Χριστὸς Ἀνέστη! [and in response: Ἀληθῶς Ἀνέστη!]
What a joy it is to return to this wonderful parish of the Life-giving Fountain in the midst of this Week of Renewal. Tonight, we rejoice with the Virgin Mother of God, who is the wellspring from which all the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ flow. For as the Mother of God, she gave to Her Creator the human nature in which we all share, and which is redeemed by the Resurrection.
