He is Risen!

Christ is risen from the dead!
Dying, he conquered death;
To the dead, he has given life.
(Byzantine Liturgy)

He is risen, risen indeed! By his death, Christ liberates us from sin; by his Resurrection he opens for us the way to new life. The empty tomb and the linen cloths lying there signify in themselves that by God's power, Christ's body had escaped the binds of death. And where Christ has gone, we one day will follow. If that's not good news, I don't know what is! "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"
