“Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the
mother of James, and Salome bought spices that they might come
and anoint Him.” Mark 16:1
On Pascha night as our procession arrived at the front doors of the
Church, we heard the Gospel according to St. Mark 16:1-8
proclaimed and the Angel announce to the women: HE IS NOT
HERE! HE IS RISEN! With this proclamation, the Resurrection of
Christ was announced and gave us reason to sing our song of victory:
Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death.
And upon those in the tombs bestowing life!
