Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen! Happy Easter! / The Miracle of the Holy Fire in Jerusalem

Christ is Risen Icon

“Christ is risen from the dead,
trampling down death by death,
and on those in the tombs bestowing
life!”

Happy Easter to all my beloved readers. In relation to the Greatest feast of all times I wish to all my readers a lot of good health, a lot of success in all good, and a lot of love. Rejoice for the Lord and Saviour of mankind has been risen!

In Jerusalem the Holy Fire has descended from Heaven. For all Unorthodox Christians, it’s important to note that the Holy Fire is the miracle confirming that the Christian Orthodox faith is the true ancient Christian faith in fulness!

Each year the Holy Fire descends from heaven and lights up the candle of the Patriarch of the Jerusalem Church. This only happens on the Orthodox Easter! This is without question a great miracle and a very graceful act by which God shows us he has not left us behind.

Here is a video you can watch, where you can see the miracle happening as well as a discussion, is really the miracle real:

Holy Light (Holy Fire) in Jerusalem: Proofs & Testimonies

During the three days in which, we the Christians celebrate the glorious Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour. It’s accepted that the ordinary “Hi” or “Hello” greeting we use daily, is ex-changed for “Christ is Risen!” 🙂

The word “Easter” used for the Resurrection 3 day feasts is also interesting as it comes from “Eastern” – (e.g. Eastern Orthodox Church) 🙂

    Dear brother, with no offense, Easter does not derive from Eastern. It derives from the name of a pagan goddess whose feast we have baptised to honor our risen Lord.

    He is risen indeed brother!

      Christ is Risen brother John,

      Thanks for noting the Easter, it seems you’re right and my understanding of Easter’s etymology was wrong.
      However, in most Slavic languages, the name for Easter either means “Great Day” or “Great Night”. For example, Wielkanoc, Veľká noc and Velikonoce mean “Great Night” or “Great Nights” in Polish, Slovak and Czech, respectively. Велигден (Veligden), Великдень (Velykden), Великден (Velikden), and Вялікдзень (Vyalikdzyen’) mean “The Great Day” in Macedonian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, and Belarusian, respectively.

      I mean the Slavonic meaning of Easter is connected to Orthodox Christianity, thus I thought that my logic was right 🙂

      Yes he is Risen!

This year Praise be to God, a Jacobine Holy Liturgy, will be served in Vidin with blessing of Vidin’s Metropolitan – I read this news in Dveri.BG , an information site discussing Bulgarian Church and related news.

      Heya,
      I forgot, where I took it from when blogging. I don’t hold copyrights to the picture or icon. It is a Russian icon so the original should be (presumably) somewhere in Russia.
