In accordance with Holy Tradition, Fr. Thomas reads the 4th-century Paschal Homily of St. John Chrysostom.
Listen as St. John reminds us that we all — whether having fasted or not fasted, whether having arrived early or only at "the eleventh hour" — are welcome to feast at the table of the Christ's great "banquet of faith!"
Rejoice! For death has been embittered, and Christ has conquered death by His death!
Христос васкрсе! Ваистину васкрсе!
