Orthodox Easter - 19 of April 2009
« on: March 05, 2009, 09:16:23 PM »
"Christ has arisen! Truly arisen!"

Holiday Lights,  Jesus Revivals, Easter, - the main event of the year for Orthodox Christians and the biggest Orthodox holiday. The word "Easter" has come to us from the Greek language and means "transient", "deliverance". This day we triumph deliverance over Christ of the Savior of all mankind from slavery to a a life and eternal pleasure. As God Jesus's the death accomplishes our expiation so His Revival grants to us an eternal life.

Revival of Jesus is a basis of our Orthodox belief, it is the first and greatest truth which was begun in goodwill by apostles.

In 2009 Easter falls on April, 19 on new style.
Праздник Светлого Христова Воскресения, Пасха, - главное событие года для православных христиан и самый большой православный праздник. Слово "Пасха" пришло к нам из греческого языка и означает "прехождение", "избавление". В этот день мы торжествуем избавление через Христа Спасителя всего человечества от рабства диаволу и дарование нам жизни и вечного блаженства. Как крестной Христовой смертью совершено наше искупление, так Его Воскресением дарована нам вечная жизнь.

Воскресение Христово - это основа и венец нашей веры, это первая и самая великая истина, которую начали благовествовать апостолы.

В 2009 году Пасха приходится на 19 апреля по новому стилю.

It is usually one week difference betwen Orthodox and Catholic Easter.
