The Paschal service commemorated the Resurrection of Our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ. We recalled how the Myrrh-Bearing Women came to the tomb at dawn, wondering who would move the heavy stone out of the way so that they could annoint Him, but found the stone moved, his shroud and and an Angel sitting on the rock, who asked them "why seek ye the living among the dead".  They ran back to tell the Apostles, and Peter and John had a footrace to the tomb to see for themselves that Christ Is Risen.   


  

We blessed Paschal baskets at the end of the Divine Liturgy.
