Resurrection Matins - 04/14/12

Resurrection Matins
"Come receive the light from the never-ending Light..."
The procession makes its way through the crowd...
"Glory to the holy, consubstantial, life-giving and undivided Trinity..."
"Christ is Risen! Hristos a Inviat!"
"Open the gates you princes and let the King of Glory enter in!"
The faithful return into the brightly lit church to continue the service.
The parish choir leads the responses
"Christ is Risen! Hristos a Inviat!"
The faithful come forward to be anointed with holy oil at the end of the service.
At the end of the Resurrection Matins service, the traditional blessing of baskets takes place.
