Myrrh-Bearing WomenWeek of the Myrrh-Bearing Women

Christ is Risen! Indeed, He is Risen! Хрїстóсъ воскрéсе! Воистину воскресе! Χριστός ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!

Christ is risen from the dead * trampling down Death by death, * and upon those in the tombs bestowing life! (Troparion)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Although You descended into the tomb, O Immortal One, * You destroyed the power of Hades; * You arose as the victor, O Christ God, * proclaiming to the myrrh-bearing women: “Rejoice!” * And granting peace to Your Apostles, * O, You, Who gives resurrection to the fallen. (Kontakion)
