Pastoral Letter on the Occasion of the Resurrection of our Lord, 2011

 “According to the doctrine of the Holy Evangelists and church historians, this moment of the Resurrection of our Lord occurred on the first Sunday after Jewish Pesach. Since then, Sunday has become for us, the Orthodox Christians, the “Holy Day, Empress and Lady, Feast of Feasts and Celebration of Celebrations, when we bless Christ to all eternity”. Therefore, Sunday – this “Celebration of Celebrations and Feast of Feasts” is a an ebullition of light and life. By His Resurrection, the Redeemer comprises our human nature to sanctify and deify it”.
