PASCHAL MESSAGE TO THOSE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE
SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY
On Holy Pascha we celebrate the Feast of Feasts and the Holy Day of Holy Days. Spiritual joy and gladness radiates throughout the Christian world for on Pascha our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ has illumined all through His Resurrection! Heaven and earth rightly rejoice together, for the Light of the Resurrection of the Lord has illumined heaven and earth and hades. The descent of the Savior into hades has brought eternal Light and Joy to those held there who died in the belief and hope of the Resurrection.
On Pascha, Christ has established a new foundation for mankind through His Ressurection, thus crowning all of the glorious miracles He had wrought upon earth.
Dear Brethren, Matushka Victoria and I love all of you so very much! Our prayer is that we use the remaining time of the 'Great Fast' and 'Holy Week' wisely, by purifying our souls and bodies ... and when Pascha arrives may we be worthy to proclaim together that truly "CHRIST IS RISEN'!
With anticipation of Pascha,
