Christ is Risen!

You who have been in Hades from the beginning, go free! You who are in fetters, come forth! You who are in darkness, be unveiled! (Is 49:9) Come away, you prisoners! Open your eyes, you blind! (Is 61:1). Awake, sleeping Adam, and rise from the dead, for Christ, the resurrection, has appeared (Eph 5:14).

St John of Damascus
