Christ the Saviour celebrates Resurrection - 04/18/15

Throughout Bright Week, the community of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church in Harrisburg, PA will continue to gather and celebrate the Lord’s Resurrection. On Monday we were joined by clergy and faithful from our local Orthodox Churches - Holy Apostles Orthodox Mission (Mechanicsburg); Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral (Camp Hill), and St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church  (Steelton) for the Divine Liturgy. Fr. Christopher Rocknage, pastor of St. Nicholas, was our celebrant and gave an inspiring homily about the joy of the Resurrection of our Lord and our need to share it wherever we go!
We will again join our local Orthodox communities to celebrate the Divine Liturgy on Bright Tuesday at St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church, and on Bright Friday at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral (Camp Hill) for the Feast of the Life-giving Spring.
Aposticha Hymn at Vespers for the Life-Giving Spring
With hymns of wonder, let us, the faithful, praise and glorify the heavenly cloud that lets fall upon the earth the heavenly Rain, the life-giver Christ! He is the living divine Water that eternally pours forth the Ambrosia of nectar that never diminishes even after it has been drunk, but which dispels the thirst and also refreshes our soul. As we drink of it with wisdom, the most divine streams shall come forth from our hearts, and shall shower us all with bountiful grace.
