The Women with their Ointments went with Mary to the Tomb, and they wondered how they would attain what they desired. Then they saw that the stone was rolled back, and also a Godly Young Man who tried to quiet the disturbance of their soul. For he said: The Lord Jesus has Risen! Therefore, preach It to His Disciples and Preachers, that they should go quickly to Galilee; and Thou will see Him, Risen from the dead, as the Giver of Life and Lord. Ages of Ages.

Let us be glorious in splendour for the Festival, and let us embrace one another.

Thou descended into the deepest


parts of the earth and Thou shattered everlasting bars that held fast those fettered; and on the third day, like Jonah from the whale, Thou arose from the Tomb. Only Blessed and Ever Glorious God of our Fathers, Who Redeemed the Children from the furnace, became Man, suffered as a mortal; and through Suffering, He clothes the mortal with the Grace of Incorruption. Praise, we Bless and we Worship the Lord.

saying: Rejoice! to the Myrrhbearers, Thou allayed the lament of the First Mother, Eve, at Thy Resurrection, O Christ our God. And Thou ordered Thy Apostles to proclaim: THE SAVIOUR HAS RISEN FROM THE TOMB! Saviour, as the Myrrhbearers were on their way to Thy Tomb, they wondered to themselves and said: Who will role the stone away from the Tomb for us? and looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away. They were amazed by the sight of the Angel and His Robe. Trembling overwhelmed them and they considered fleeing. Then the Young Man said to them: Do ot be afraid: the One you seek has Risen. Come, see the place where the Body of Jesys lay. Now go quickly and tell the Disciples: THE SAVIOUR HAS RISEN FROM THE TOMB! the 29th of this month we Commemorate the Holy Apostles of the 70, St Jason and St Sosipater.
