He Is Risen!
The Lord is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
Late tomorrow or early Monday I'll post photos and relate the beauty of the ancient Easter Vigil service with Alpine Anglican and the joy of the Resurrection as celebrated with Lake Murray. But for now, I will leave you with the Scriptures for the Octave of Easter from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer:
Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us: therefore let us keep the feast, Not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (I Corinthians 5:7).
Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:9).
Christ is risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection from the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive (I Corinthians 15:20).
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
A Joyous Eastertide to you -- He is risen! The Lord is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
