8 April 2018. It’s Here… The Holiest of Holy Days for Orthodox Christians

________________________

It’s here. This day defines what we are as Orthodox Christians. As the Apostle wrote:

If Christ be not risen from the dead, your faith is in vain.

If you don’t confess this in your heart of hearts, you’re no Christian, no matter how many pro-life placards you wave, how many guns you own, how many Republicans you vote for, or how many “faggots” you’ve hated and scorned. If Christ be risen truly in your heart, people know it. Trust me, if He isn’t, people know that too. Follow real Christians like HH, who was friends with Comandante Fidel and is friends with Comrade Zyuganov and the rocker Kostya Kinchyov. He spends his holidays with the homeless, sick, and imprisoned. Now, there’s a Christian with the Risen Christ in his heart… may we do likewise! Say it loud:

Христосъ воскресе!

Воистинну воскресе!

This is why we believe and continue to believe. Stay focused, stay the course, and stand firm. The plug-uglies can’t win as long as we face forward and keep on truckin’. Take my hand… the road does twist, turn, and have its bumps and furrows…
