Christ is Risen!

All Orthodox Christians will greet each other for forty days after Eastern Day with the greeting 'Christ is Risen', 'Truly He is Risen'. This is a beautiful reminder of the Resurrection of  the Son of God from the Dead and the verification of our faith, as St. Paul proclaims in 1 Corinthians that without the resurrection our faith is in vain. 

Here the video gives the hymn 'Christ is Risen', in Greek, Arabic, English, French and Russian, showing that the whole oikoumene rejoices during this period of Resurrection.!
