Christ is risen! Truly He is risen!

Orthodox Christians are currently celebrating the most sacred and joyous feast of the year: Pascha.

You can catch a glimpse of how beautiful and diverse the Orthodox celebration of this feast is in the video embedded above. It features a famous hymn from the Matins service of Pascha: “It is the Day of Resurrection! Let us be radiant, O people! Pascha! The Lord’s Pascha! For Christ our God has brought us from death to life, and from earth unto heaven, as we sing triumphant hymns!”

You’ll see images from around the world, and hear this hymn in many languages and in different choral settings, as well as different styles of chant. Truly, this is a feast for all mankind.
