He is Risen – to our brothers and sisters in the Orthodox world #Easter

 

Herland Report: He is Risen – to all our brothers and sisters in the Orthodox world: Today, as Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter, the center fold descent of the Holy Fire in the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is an important part of the yearly rituals.

The flames then travel to the rest of the world, by plane and sea, to invigorate in the believers the joy in the message: “He is Risen!”

The life and legacy of Jesus Christ is central to the celebration of God’s love for human kind the world over.

The message of the spiritual world joining the material world in the union of God with mankind, marks the centerfold of the Easter celebration.

As this year is different, the celebrations of liturgy happen in empty churches, yet followed by social media and in the heart of millions of Christians around the world. (Feature photo: Moscow. Reuters)

The Holy Fire was taken to Russia, Greece and other places where the Orthodox Church dominates society.

He is Risen – to all our brothers and sisters in the Orthodox world: Today, as Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter, the center fold descent of the Holy Fire in the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is an important part of the yearly rituals. The flames then travel to the rest of the world, by plane and sea, to invigorate in the believers the joy in the message: “He is Risen!”

 

He is Risen – to all our brothers and sisters in the Orthodox world: “All the measures to protect people’s lives and health and support the economy require additional and large resources and reserves. We have them,” president President Vladimir Putin said as he congratulated Orthodox Christians and Russian citizens celebrating Easter on Sunday.

He added that the funds will be used to help those who have faced difficulties amid the pandemic.

As of Sunday, over 42,000 people in Russia have tested positive for the virus, which has already left 361 people dead, reports RT.

Russian Patriarch Kirill, who leads 150 million believers, held a televised service at Christ the Saviour Church in Moscow as people were urged to stay at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In an address, he said although the church was empty ‘we are together – one big family of Orthodox believers’, reports Daily Mail.
