Χριστός ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!

A blessed Easter to all as this Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord comes to an end (though the Feast Himself is eternal!).

Please find below a beautiful post on Rev. Cwirla's Blogosphere in honor of our Blessed Lord's Resurrection and the universal ramifications of that historic event for the life of the world. The Rev. William Cwirla has posted the ancient Resurrection greeting in several languages, beginning with the original Greek (our Orthodox brothers and sisters celebrate the Resurrection this year on April 27) and with the (almost-original) Latin right below.

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Amen!

Rev. Larry Beane

Christ is Risen! Alleluia!

Χριστός ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!
Christus resurrexit! Resurrexit vere!
Christus ist auferstanden! Er ist wahrhaftig auferstanden!
Christus is opgestaan! Hij is waarlijk opgestaan!
Kristus er opstanden! Sandelig Han er Opstanden!
Kristus er opstanden! Sandelig Han er Opstanden!
Kristus er oppstanden! Han er sannelig oppstanden!
Kristus är uppstånden! Ja, Han är verkligen uppstånden!
Christ est ressuscité! Il est vraiment ressuscité!
Cristo è risorto! È veramente risorto!
Cristo ressuscitou! Em verdade ressuscitou!
Hristos a înviat! Adevărat a înviat!
¡Cristo ha resucitado! ¡En verdad ha resucitado!
Христос воскрес! Воистину воскрес!
Kristus (ir) augšāmcēlies! Patiesi viņš ir augšāmcēlies!
Tá Críost éirithe! Go deimhin, tá sé éirithe!
al-Masīḥ qām! Ḥaqqan qām!
KrÍstus tÉlah Bangkit! Benár día têlah Bángkit!
Kristus prisikele! Jis tikrai prisikele! (via Pr. Charles Evanson)

Any way you say it, the news is good:

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!

Pastor Beane -- I'm doing a survey on vestment use for a project at the University of North Texas. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could publicize it by posting it on you blog. Please fill it out also!

Blessings in Christ,
