The entire essence of Christianity rests upon the most glorious Resurrection of Christ, which contains the answer to the mystery of our life and faith.&nbsp; &ldquo;If Christ is not Risen,&rdquo; says the Apostle Paul, &ldquo;then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty&rdquo; (1Cor.15:14).&nbsp; Our faith would not exist without the Resurrection of Christ, and without faith there would be no true life, because the Christian faith is the point of our life and our spiritual essence.&nbsp; On this Paschal night we, in the words of St. John Chrysostom, proclaim the victory of life over death: &ldquo;O Death, where is your sting? O Hell, where is your victory? Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave.&rdquo;</p></div> St. Sophia Seminary http://uocofusa.org/news_170403_9.html Patriarchal Encyclical For Holy Pascha 2017 http://www.uocofusa.org/news_170412_2.html Sat, 15 Apr 2017 00:00:00 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://stsuots.org/display_image.php?ext=jpg&relativeimage=images/events/2017/Pascha-banner---Patriarch.jpg&archive=0&final_h=43&final_w=90&percent=100"><p style="text-align: justify;">This message &ndash; of the victory of life over death, of the triumph of the joyful light of the paschal candle over the darkness of disorder and dissolution &ndash; is announced to the whole world from the Ecumenical Patriarchate with the invitation to experience the unwaning light of the resurrection.
