PASCHAL MESSAGE TO THOSE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION
AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY
IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED HE IS RISEN!
My Dear Spiritual Children,
We, the faithful believers, celebrate the Feast of Feasts, the radiant joyful Feast of the Lord's Resurrection from the dead. He became man like us, and was crucified, suffered and was buried ... for us! And after three days in the tomb, He rises from the dead, offering us all the promise of Resurrection unto eternal life.
Our life in the Resurrection begins even now! Although we still live in the flesh, we should not live according to the flesh, only thinking of our own bodily needs and desires. Jesus Christ's Resurrection calls us, regardless of our situation in life, to live spiritually mature lives even now. The essence of such a spiritual life is to lay down one's life for others, in imitation of Christ who died for the benefit of all. This is the calling of the new life that Christs' Resurrection gives us: "so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life' (Romans 6:4).
Dear Brethren, Matushka Victoria and I love all of you so very much! May all of us here at Holy Trinity be worthy to proclaim to the world that Truly CHRIST IS RISEN!
With Love In The Risen Lord,
