Christ is risen!

Shine, lectionary)ine, O new Jerusalem: the Glory of the Lord has shone on thee!

For the feast of the resurrection, we have added a short excerpt from an Ephremic text On Repentence. It is, to our knowledge, the only work in the corpus which contains the phrase Χριστὸς ἀνέστη (Christ is risen!).
