But the angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. 6He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples, “He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.” (Matthew 28:5-7)
COME YOU ALL: ENTER THE JOY OF YOUR LORD. YOU THE FIRST AND YOU THE LAST, RECEIVE ALIKE YOUR REWARD; YOU RICH AND YOU POOR, DANCE TOGETHER; YOU SOBER AND YOU WEAKLINGS, CELEBRATE THE DAY; YOU WHO HAVE KEPT THE FAST AND YOU WHO HAVE NOT, REJOICE TODAY. THE TABLE IS RICHLY LOADED… LET NO ONE GO AWAY HUNGRY. ALL OF YOU ENJOY THE BANQUET OF FAITH; ALL OF YOU RECEIVE THE RICHES OF [GOD’S] GOODNESS.
LET NONE GRIEVE OVER THEIR POVERTY, FOR THE UNIVERSAL KINGDOM HAS BEEN REVEALED; LET NONE WEEP OVER THEIR SINS, FOR PARDON HAS SHONE FROM THE GRAVE; LET NONE FEAR DEATH, FOR THE DEATH OF OUR SAVIOUR HAS SET US FREE…
Paschal Homily, St. John Chrysostom
