Sunday Photos – Orthodox Easter

Today is Easter Sunday in the Orthodox Church with celebrations in the likes of Greece, Cyprus, Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine & Romania taking place today.

These pictures were taken on Friday evening and after midnight this morning in and around the St Constantine & St Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Upper Norwood, South London.

Christ’s Epitaph Is Paraded Around The Streets On Friday Evening

Candles Lit From The Holy Light That Travelled From Jerusalem

We all sang:

‘”Xristos Anesti, ek nekron,

Thanato thanaton patisas,

Kai tis en minimasin,

Zoe harisisamenas”

Which roughly translates as:

Christ has risen from the dead, defeating death through death, and to those that have died, he has given life”
