Paschal Greetings

Paschal Greetings from the Lyons Family!

What a blessed Pascha! I hope your day has been as blessed as mine. The day began around 5 AM with a wake up call to be ready for Paschal Matins and Divine Service (i.e., the Easter Vigil with Holy Communion). The Paschal Candle was lit, the Exsultet sung, and several Scripture readings shared with us the promise of the Resurrection. Baptismal vows were renewed, and the Lamb's High Feast was shared (with a version of the Anaphora of Saint Basil, an alternative Eucharistic prayer in our BCP).

Such a beautiful Liturgy... then out for a great brunch at Augustino's, our friend Chef Aaron O'Mara's Italian restaurant on Indy's south side. Talk about delicious (as usual)! Then a nice afternoon nap before supper and then Vespers by the light of the Paschal Candle and the sinking sun. The reading was one of my favorites, the Lukan account of the journey to Emmaus

I pray that your Pascha has been a blessed one.

Christ is risen!
Truly he is risen!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
