Hristos Voskrese! Vaistinu Voskrese!
Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Truly Risen!
It’s a glorious, sunny Easter Sunday in Chicago!
I ask my fellow brothers and sisters of the west, to spend some time reflecting on the meaning of Easter as found in the East. Look at the icons of the east. See and experience the patristic theology. Our Christian roots.
“If Christ did not rise for us, then he did not rise at all, since he had no need of it just for Himself. In Him the world arose, in Him heaven arose, in Him the earth arose. For there will be a new heaven and a new earth.” – St Ambrose of Milan
