From PASCHA until the Apodosis of the Feast on May 28 (May 15 on the Church calendar), Orthodox Christians greet each other with the joyous:

CHRIST IS RISEN! And its response: TRULY, HE IS RISEN!  All of RENEWAL WEEK is an extension of PASCHA — a fast-free week

a week of Resurrectional joy!  During the whole of Paschaltide and until the Vespers for the Feast of the Holy Spirit and on all Lord’s Days —

Orthodox Christians do not kneel at prayer because of the great, joyous and resurrectional nature of the feasts of Pascha, the Ascension, and Pentecost. 

 

Reverend Father Constantine DesRosiers is the celebrating priest through Pascha.
