You May Not Know…

Good morning, Brethren.

Alleluia! The Lord is risen!

Thank you everybody for everything done for Holy Week. Please especially express your appreciation to those who spent many hours working hard to make it a great week.  This year especially it was important for us to be together celebrating the goodness of the Lord to us.

The celebration of Pascha or Easter runs for the entire Easter Week but especially the first three days: Sunday, Easter Monday, and Easter Tuesday before it settles into the normal pace of Eastertide which lasts until the Feast of the Ascension in forty days.

May the Lord grant you a joyful and blessed Easter Week : )

The following sentences may be read in the morning for prayer during Easter Week (sorry about the formatting – I have NO idea how to fix it.):

CHRIST our Passover is sacrificed for us: * therefore 
  let us keep the feast, 
      Not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice 
and wickedness; * but with the unleavened bread of sincerity 
and truth.  1 Cointhians 5:7

CHRIST being raised from the dead dieth no more; * 
  death hath no more dominion over him.  
      For in that he died, he died unto sin once: * but in that 
he liveth, he liveth unto God.  
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed 
unto sin, * but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our 
Lord.  Romans 6:9

CHRIST is risen from the dead, * and become the 
   firstfruits of them that slept.  
For since by man came death, * by man came also the 
resurrection of the dead.  
For as in Adam all die, * even so in Christ shall all be 
made alive.  1 Cor. 15:20

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.  Amen.

The Collect to be said each day this week:

ALMIGHTY God, who through thine only-begotten Son
Jesus Christ hast overcome death, and opened unto us
the gate of everlasting life; We humbly beseech thee that,
as by thy special grace preceding us, thou dost put into our
minds good desires, so by thy continual help we may bring
the same to good effect; through the same Jesus Christ our
Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost
ever, one God, world without end.  Amen.
