With, clarity the blackout, the coincided and one of Orthodox holidays’s organs is fall asleep of the Virgin.

28 August Russian Orthodox Church celebrates called Sacred of the Virgin.

Celebration Uspenija of - one of the most unexpected for secular miroponimaniya. That is celebrated in this day? Wasn can be celebrate death? But Slavonic word "fall asleep" means dream. And sense holiday in is, that there is no more the death, which waited every until Resurrection Christ. There is no more sorrow about death, there is no before it of fear. Apostle Paul, vospevshiy victory words an ancient prophet, - "Death! Where yours sting? Hell! Where your victory? ", - says:" For me life - Christ, and death - purchases of "(Phil 1.21). And after the end the earth life Sacred Virgin has the Virgin not leaves world: "In Christmas devstvo retained despoil, in the Assumption world not left despoil to Virgin." - reminds Chinese clergy Eve caroling.

Ascension Christ Sacred Virgin has Epiphanius lived in area Jerusalem, incoming seats, where preached and committed miracles Her the Son. Especially she loved praying in of Gethsemane garden, where Christ have led on Court and on godparents, so suffering. Prayed Sacred Virgin has the Virgin about address to faith of the polluted Jew people and about new churches, organized by apostles in different countries. She and itself many talked the brining announcement Resurrection Christ.

And here is in late one such prayer produced before Ney Archangel Gavriil, which not times was to It, Far imperative of God. Bright relish, He told to It, that through three days will end path Her the earth life, and God accorded Her in Svoi perpetual abode. Under this He gave it heavenly place branch, scintillating track toward light. Returning with (Jerusalem) mountains, Kazan has become prepare for an make sail from this life.

The same an angel informed,
But posuplen and smuten he,
Branch temnoyu ukazuet,
That comes the latest dream.
Dresses inclined slave of God:
- That is ready I die

Came the hour, when it must was introducing myself. In room were blazing candles, but on plans deathbed have lain Kazan, surrounded by lyubivshimi Her people. Suddenly khramina ozarilas Flavourings light the Divine glory and in means unusual light of gone with the sky Sam central Jesus Christ, surrounded by Angels and souls antiquated righteous persons.

Kazan, despite Svoego the Son, as would sweet falling asleep, without taking any corporal suffering, has betrayed in His hands initially, clean soul. Later, remembering this event, Church in one and their songs of hackneyed tripe: ",, fall asleep Pure videvshi, udivishasya: To find the Devo despondent from land on with the" - even, surprised such a peaceful transition from life the earth in life Messiah--as.
On to the legend, during burial Dame apostles have carried the overturn bed, on which pokoilos Her Prechistoe body, and a huge number of believers, surrounding them with a procession, sang sacred songs.

By the unbelievers inhabitants Jerusalem, stricken Urochistim's a burial thing going through every major about all cause it of the Jews, perhaps masters prefer, which immediately decided disperse the march of, and body Dame betray poruganiyu. When warriors quickly jumped on march of been committed miracle: In the cloud a wreath, a soaring over the body Dame, have dipped to earth and as would wall has erected the burial march of. Nevertheless, one of of Jewish priests, named Afoniy, voskliknuv: "Here is what pochest give body, which had for flattering with such delicacy, razoryavshego law our fathers," - charge to deathbed Dame with goal tip the his. But as only he were displaced by bed of, Angel neveschestvennym sword a compartment him both hands. In horror Afoniy fell on land with howls: "Sorrow me! Sorrow me! ".

Then apostle Peter, stopping march of, said Afoniyu word vrazumleniya and added, that cure wounds can only Christ, if Afoniy all the heart Orthodoxy in him. Afoniy, seeing around the fault action began today God, has exclaimed: "Believe in something, that Jesus there is predvozveschennyy difficult the Savior world Christ!". Then he turned with with your prayer to Pure The Maiden, and when he expended got stumps to its previous batty, those immediately are sticking back, remained only the thin scar in a physical reminder nechestii.

Apostle Foma not managed on burial of the Virgin and him allowed enter in cave, where was other the Virgin, to he was able worship the it in the last time.

Says Foma discrete brothers:
"Did I worse all?
Bogoroditsynym hug
For what had no involvement in sin?
Overall thirst for, brethren took up, worship the,
Kiss the saint threshold,
Where Heavenly sleeping Tsarina
On rasputiy all roads "

But, having entered cave, they saw only Her Creatan veils, squads derive savor, the most same bodies Dame there not it turned out.

The coffin of the opened. Sacred a marvel!
The coffin of the Maria obryaschen empty.
Where Pure all was a body,
Other race of roses zarevoy the flow of.

Stricken these bewildering the disappearance of the Her bodies, they understood, that himself central have deigned to above universal revival take on with the prechistoe body to His Mothers.

Surprisingly and the, that the Virgin was so modest and a humbling, that in Russia with the Gospel about it - only a few the lines. Several lines for about Toy, whose purity and belief led in the world savior of - about to Virgin in New Testament only a few the lines. Its the first words in prophecies: "CE slave of God, wake me on glagolu what you want" - "I slave of God, let will so, as you said" - these words she gives consensus on the, to Spirit Santa gone on it and came would in the world the Savior. And here is she refers to us: During long feast in Cannes Film Festival Galileyskoy She says vinocherpiyam (those who poured those wine) - What would nor said Christ, then execute. It as no one known the entire the depth of these words, She Cannito every word God, and in poverty, and in skorbyakh, and under True Cross Svoego the Son and under His resurrection, even so, where other seemed, that there is no God, if around such sorrow.

Called - one of the most favorite on Russias holidays: With time saintly of the Vladimir Uspenskie temples began to appear across Russias: Sobornyy Kyiv the Yasukuni, Desyatinnaya Church, was devoted Uspeniyu of the Virgin. To XIV digits Uspenskie temples as the main church were built in Suzdal, Rostov, Yaroslavl, Zvenigorod. Chief Moscow the Yasukuni, based in the Kremlin in XIV century, also was was sanctified in the name of Uspenija of of the Virgin. Surprisingly are beautiful and melodic rooftop chants Uspenija of Sacred of the Virgin - alone of the most or church songs enforced precisely in honor this holiday.

Easter Christ. Bright spot of Christ Sunday.

In the first century Christianity Easter celebrated not everywhere in one thing time. On East, in Maloaziyskikh churches, its celebrated in 14 th day Nisan (on our ultimately March - April), on what would day best nor accounted for this number. Western Church committed its in the first Sunday after of spring full moon. Attempt to establish consensus between Churches in this issue was made under a sacred Polikarpe, my Bishop Smirnskom
, in mid-II century. I the Ecumenical Church could 325 year defined celebrate Easter everywhere in one thing time. (Book of definition of about Easter ideas until us not has peaked. With an ancient time the Ethiopian Local the Church determine date celebration Easter on so-called nuns Paskhalii: In the first Sunday after Easter full moon, within between 22 March and 25 April.
The beginning of holiday.

Celebration begins dominical resurrection, in midnight between Great Shabbat and Voskresenem. 's your tour been especially urochista service - Light, checked "batik" style Orthros (disambiguation). Service begins in midnight, when clergy and tserkovnosluzhiteli in altar boy are beginning sing stikhiru quietly, then all louder and louder, and then in this sing insurance is and. Sticheron in the early compelled,, the 6 th.

Sunday yours, christ of Justice,
're angels sing on the Sky:
And us on earth spodobi
A net the heart year slaviti.

, hard move.
With this singing begins, hard move around temple with Urochistim armors and in bells,. During services priest again and again with relish welcomes all people at prayer words "Christ voskrese!" (Three times) and each time praying respond "greet voskrese!". Sometimes this cheer is pronounced on other languages. During services chorus often sings Easter troparia:

Christ voskrese from dead,
Death death squandered,
And a labyrinthine in coffins has met open by granting.

Word St. John Zlatoustogo.
In late compelled priest reads famous "Word St. John Zlatoustogo" (347-407), perfectly describing triumph and significance Easter. After services all praying suited to pope, which holds in the hands of used, 's getting kissed used and khristosuyutsya with him, and then with each other. After compelled some go home, and are talking homes with their relatives and friends. Of course, common sense says, that for order to feel great and healthy need before zautrenney provide and sleep several hours. This in especially applies to children.

We must only the Liturgy will.
In most churches immediately after compelled's your tour been "batik" style the Liturgy will, which continues about two hours. Thus, easter gathered does end after three hours morning. During this Liturgy, praying, which goveli, confessed and take the sacrament during Week Week of, can again taking Communion without confessions, if for istekshee time nor any big sins not was introduced.


After wop, so as post Seimyniskeliai, praying usually razgovlyayutsya (eat forbidden food – not live) under temple or have themselves on homes. As was already said higher, some go home, and razgovlyayutsya after compelled. Praying, too, bring Easter cakes, cheese Easter and Easter was dyed this, for moreover, the priest meetings the their after services.

Easter period.
The entire period until Ascension (40 days after Easter) is considered the Easter period, and Orthodox welcome each other words “Christ voskrese ” and answer“ greet voskrese. ” Even when are raising station up, then not say “hello ”, and say,“ Christ voskrese ”!.

Easter shell.
As was said already higher, Easter is celebrated seven days. At first day pani - wife remain homes, and familiar men trek on homes, and congratulate their close and known. Tables everywhere serve to supplement any event the entire day. On desks already all modest (not live). Is food: On a snack Juniper, then soup, per cage, the hot, ham, fruit, salads, wine and camping on P.
On sweet - a cheese Easter, Easter cakes, cakes, compote, tea and coffee.

Usually antistatic for the table on half an hour of exercise and then say good and a guest goes to other familiar. Necessarily need to visit all relatives, then good known, especially senior and elderly. Usually gifts in this day not bring. On the second day Easter rely, to wife were on homes, and husbands sat homes, but this not practiced. In our time, in these saints days, many colludes and trek, to each other in Visitors.

Significance Easter.
Sunday of Christ (Easter) - this the greatest celebration Orthodox Christians. Have Western Christians the most big celebration - Christmas of Christ. ????? human there is day birth and the, that have God Lord Jesus Christ there is day birth this says nothing about who He. To revive could only central God, so resurrection of Christ evidence suggests, that Jesus Christ indeed central Jesus Christ, the Son God God, & face Santa Trinity. Western Christians retreated from the Orthodox exercises and mirovoskhoreniya and because often umalyayut maximum Deity God Lord Jesus Christ, respiration they less are celebrating His resurrection, and sometimes even and hold back about him.
