Paschal Epistle of His Eminence Kyrill

Archbishop of San Francisco and Western America



What can we say of the joy that all Christian people feel on this radiant day? What words could we add, or what exhortations could bring more joy, than the simple words of the angel that shake the universe: "He is not here, for He has risen" (Mark 16:6)?

We are united today in brotherly love around the tomb of our Risen Saviour. We are standing with the myrrh-bearing women, we are racing to the empty tomb with the holy Apostles. We are rejoicing with Adam and Eve, with the prophets and patriarchs, and with all creation. We are rejoicing with our ancestors: our fathers and mothers who have gone to their rest in Christ, Who today raises up the dead and assures the world of eternal life. We rejoice, because every cause for sorrow has been conquered in the Glorious Resurrection!

What is death but separation and division? And what is resurrection but being united to our Victorious King? For this reason, Holy Pascha is also a feast of unity, and by God's mercy we celebrate this year the fifth anniversary of the reunion of our beloved Church, Christ's Bride. May such a memorial kindle renewal in our hearts, that as One Body we may grow in the love of Christ in the year to come, and that through all our lives we may be drawn more closely into the pattern of Divine Life.

Beloved Fathers, reverend monastics, pious flock of Christ: let us lift up our hearts together today! May we rejoice now and always in the Resurrection of Christ, who makes joy out of sorrow and brings unconquerable light into a world filled with too much darkness. May our churches sing out in these days the songs of victory, offered from hearts that know no enemies, no foes, no hatred or judgment: only the love of a God who has overcome death and called the world itself to unending joy.

Acts 1:1-8


1 The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

The Holy Spirit Promised

And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

John 1:1-17

The Eternal Word

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

John’s Witness: The True Light

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The Word Becomes Flesh

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”
16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

John 20:19-25

The Apostles Commissioned

19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

Seeing and Believing

24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
