A short Paschal greeting of St. Porphyrios
"I pray that the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ will resurrect within your souls every good and beautiful feeling, in order to lead everyone towards holiness and to put to death the old man together with its passions and desires. This is what our Lord seeks, and these I pray: that His Resurrection might help, might be well pleased to overcome and to put to death our old man, that we might be made worthy of His Church.
Certainly! This I pray, may our Lord help us.
Many years! Christ is risen!"
Christ is risen from the dead, by death, trampling down upon death, and to those in the tombs, He is granting life!
Truly the Lord is risen!
