Sixth Week of Pascha
Sunday of the Man Born Blind

Christ is Risen! + Christos Voskrese! + Christos Anesti!
Indeed, He is Risen! + Voistinnu Voskrese! + Alithos Anesti!

Christ is risen from the dead * trampling down Death by death, * and to 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)
