Week Bright as the Sun

"Today is the day of the Resurrection, let us be illumined, o people!" – we sing at Pascha. Indeed, the feast of Pascha illumines life just like the sun. The church is beaming with lit candles; the sun shines on gilded altarpieces; faces radiate with joy... It is not by accident that the Paschal week is called Bright week. Pascha lasts for seven days, and these days fly like a single day or, rather, like a single Paschal service. Continuous exclamations: "Christ is Risen!" by the priests (in all possible languages); the nuns chant the marvelous, fulgent with lights, as it were, Paschal canon; the procession with the resounding semantron awakens the morning birds, inviting them to glorify the Risen Christ together with us. If Pascha is so splendid on earth, what will Eternal Pascha look like, "in the unending day of Thy Kingdom"?!
