CHRIST IS RISEN! ( 23.04.2006 )
Before midnight, in the cathedral in Strumica, dedicated to the Holy equal-to-apostles all-Slavic enlighteners Methodius and Cyril, at the procession of the Midnight Service of Christ’s Resurrection, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica spread light to the countless faithful, greeting them with the brightest words ever given to humanity “Christ is risen!” His Eminence celebrated the Paschal Hierarch’s Divine Liturgy in the cathedral of Saint Leontius’ monastery in Vodoča. Tonight the churches were flooded with a multitude of people to the glory of the Resurrection of Christ.
“Christ is risen from the dead,
By death hath He trampled down death,
And on those in the graves
Hath he bestowed light”
