The resurrection of Christ, prayer

For a week after the resurrection of Christ, that is from Easter Sunday until the following Saturday, we say the following prayer, instead, three times, twice a day.


Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and to those in the tombs, granting life.

Looking at the resurrection of Christ,
we venerate(worship, kiss) the holy Lord Jesus the only sinless.
Your cross Christ we venerate,
and your holy resurrection we chant and glorify.
You are our God.
Besides you we find no-one.
We call your name.
Let all believers venerate the resurrection of Christ.
Behold through the cross joy came in all the world,
forever we bless the Lord,
we chant His resurrection.
You endured the cross for us, and You killed death.

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and to those in the tombs, granting life.


From the resurrection of Christ until His ascension, that is for forty days, we conclude our prayer with: Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and to those in the tombs, granting life.
In these forty days instead of saying hello we say: Christ is risen. We reply: He is risen indeed.

Christ is risen
