Proclaim it to All

By Thy Cross Thou didst destroy death.
To the thief Thou didst open Paradise.
For the Myrrhbearers Thou didst change weeping into joy,
and Thou didst command Thy disciples, O Christ God,
to proclaim that Thou art risen,
granting the world great mercy.

This was taken just a week ago at a nearby park where I was blessed to take a hike. We were blessed with such a beautiful, sunny day.

Today is Sunday. The most beautiful day of the whole week! This hymn was sung last night in preparation for today’s liturgy.

We are reminded in the weekly hymns of the Church that Christ has conquered death!

He has opened Paradise to all!

He has changed weeping into joy!

And we are commanded to proclaim it to all, “Thou art risen”!

Christ is risen!

Have a very blessed and joy-filled Sunday!
