Am I the first? I guess an advantage of being in the far east! ;-) haha Christo kkeso puhwal hashotsumnida! (Christ is risen! in korean)
Indeed He is risen! Now I just have to get my act together for our service, still three hours away. I\'ve got my OrthoDoc Martins on!
In deed He is will be in another 6 hours... :-)
the Korean in that list is not well written (not to mention impolite) I wonder if others are similarly misrepresented...
haha, not offensive, just not polite - friendly, haha... I doubt anyone would take offense... to my halmoni in church I say it the polite way and she goes \\"eung! keurae!\\"
Kriost eirgim! Eirgim! (For all my gaelic brothers and sisters out there!)
! ????????? ??? ???? ???? ??? He is not here, for he rose! First part of Matthew 28:6 in Hebrew.
Oops! It was there in Hebrew before I submitted it. Now it is not. Sorry. -- Gamliel
the site doesn\'t support foreign alphabets, ironic.
Truly he is risen! We say that in 6 languages in our church. We also say the Lords prayer in those languages during services. Lot\'s of fun! What an incredible week it\'s been!
Christos Anesti ??????? ?????? From Greece to all my brothers and sisters Let all pious men and all lovers of God rejoice in the splendor of this feast; let the wise servants blissfully enter into the joy of their Lord; let those who have borne the burden of Lent now receive their pay, and those who have toiled since the first hour, let them now receive their due reward; let any who came after the third hour be grateful to join in the feast, and those who may have come after the sixth, let them not be afraid of being too late; for the Lord is gracious and He receives the last even as the first. He gives rest to him who comes on the eleventh hour as well as to him who has toiled since the first: yes, He has pity on the last and He serves the first; He rewards the one and praises the effort. Come you all: enter into the joy of your Lord. You the first and you the last, receive alike your reward; you rich and you poor, dance together; you sober and you weaklings, celebrate the day; you who have kept the fast and you who have not, rejoice today. The table is richly loaded: enjoy its royal banquet. The calf is a fatted one: let no one go away hungry. All of you enjoy the banquet of faith; all of you receive the riches of his goodness. Let no one grieve over his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed; let no one weep over his sins, for pardon has shone from the grave; let no one fear death, for the death of our Saviour has set us free: He has destroyed it by enduring it, He has despoiled Hades by going down into its kingdom, He has angered it by allowing it to taste of his flesh. When Isaias foresaw all this, he cried out: O Hades, you have been angered by encountering Him in the nether world. Hades is angered because frustrated, it is angered because it has been mocked, it is angered because it has been destroyed, it is angered because it has been reduced to naught, it is angered because it is now captive. It seized a body, and, lo! it encountered heaven; it seized the visible, and was overcome by the invisible. O death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? Christ is risen and you are abolished. Christ is risen and the demons are cast down. Christ is risen and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen and life is freed. Christ is risen and the tomb is emptied of the dead: for Christ, being risen from the dead, has become the Leader and Reviver of those who had fallen asleep. To Him be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
Alleluia,Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed.Alleluia!
