How truly holy and most festive is this salvific night, how full of light,
herald of the bright day of the resurrection…

Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

This salvific night, how full of joy is the evening celebration of the Feast of Feasts, the Resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. And such a stark contrast between this holy night and the darkness that often engulfs the world around us! Humanity’s spiritual blindness and its passions represent the dark night of this world as they lead to war, the breaking of treatises, terror and misery.

However, this darkness never overcomes the Light that has entered the world. The principalities and powers of evil are unable to overwhelm the Life that has risen in glory from the tomb. While the eyes of many are blind, the murky night of this age is already being transformed into the night of our salvation.

Moreover, it is our calling to let our light shine forth before men. And if we allow the light of Christ to shine forth through our own lives we can overcome the divisions that exist among and within our Churches. In this way, together, we can bear witness to the Life that is stronger than death and darkness. The preparations for the Holy and Great Council, to be held in 2016, represent a most important step in this effort. However, we must work diligently to ensure that this monumental event will prove to be a blessing for us and for the world that desperately thirsts for an authentic expression of life.

In closing, I convey to the holy hierarchs, all the clergy, monastics, and laity of each local Orthodox Church my sincere prayers for a glorious Pascha that bestows unto you an abundance of health and renewed vigour in the Risen Master.

With love and joy in the Resurrection,

+ Stephanos,
Metropolitan of Tallinn and All Estonia

In Tallinn, Holy Pascha 2015
