Paschal Epistle of His Eminence Kyrill, Archbishop of San Francisco and Western America
We are united today in brotherly love around the tomb of our Risen Saviour. We are standing with the myrrh-bearing women, we are racing to the empty tomb with the holy Apostles. We are rejoicing with Adam and Eve, with the prophets and patriarchs, and with all creation. We are rejoicing with our ancestors: our fathers and mothers who have gone to their rest in Christ, Who today raises up the dead and assures the world of eternal life. We rejoice, because every cause for sorrow has been conquered in the Glorious Resurrection!
