Let God arise, and his enemies be scattered.
                        Ps 68:2

               
Christ is risen!

               
The great and holy Pascha is come. As the spring opens what has been hidden and waiting during the winter, so the joy of resurrection that is already hidden in the divine services of Lent and the Passion Week has now burst into bloom.
Even as Christians, we are living among the concerns and problems of this world, a world turning more and more unstable and ominous. Add to this the illnesses and concerns we have in our body and mind. But we know that suffering and death will not have the last word. Jesus Christ, the God-man rose to life from the depth of Hades, conquering death and bridging the gap between the Creator and men. So the new life effloresced.
And in the midst of the hardships and threats of this life we know that this hope cannot be taken from us, that this joy is with us forever.
“Now all things have been filled with light,“ we sing today. In this paschal joy we approach another joyful event: the Great and Holy Council that will gather this summer after long preparations. This, however, is a great responsibility for us. It matters not only what we have to say to our own people, but what we have to say to all the world. Have we got a comprehensible message to the non-orthodox as well as to the people who are just seeking God?
               
                In the joy of the Resurrection let me congratulate you and wish you a bright Eastertime, health, strength and success.

               
In our risen Lord,

+ Stephanos,
Metropolitan of Tallinn and All Estonia
