of the Right Reverend NICKON, bishop of Florida
"We are celebrating the putting to death of death, the destruction of hell, and of eternal life the beginning"'.(From the 7-th hymn of the Easter Canon) "Let no one be afraid of death, for we are made free by the death of the Saviour."(From the sermon of Saint John Chrysostom).
Nevertheless, the historical fact of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is accepted by our mind only if it has been received beforehand by the highest faculty of our spirit-faith; And, if our faith has died, then the mind too, in spite of reality, will reject this fact, and will assume that it does not exist.
Earth! tell it out abroad!
The Passover of gladness!
The Passover of God!
From Death to Life Eternal,
From this world to the sky,
Our Christ that brought us over,
With hymns of victory. (1 hymn, 1 song).
