Pascha Polyglotta

It is a tradition in the Orthodox Church that, beginning during the Resurrection Liturgy through Pentecost, we greet someone with the words, "Christ is Risen". When greeted in this way, we respond,"Truely He is Risen".

We do this in as many languages as possible.
Christos Anesti! Alithos Anesti!
Christos Voskrese! Voistinou Voskrese!
Al'Masiah qam! haqqan qam!

Here is a site where you, my beloved readers, can find the greeting in 250 languages.

Pascha polyglotta - Paschal Greetings in 250 Languages.

Having this blog, a web site, formerly having two Orthodox Groups, and having been in many other places on the internet, I have friends everywhere, including some in difficult circumstances. For those and everyone, have courage, hope, and faith.

Issah Ghi-yam kard! dar vagheh ou barkhasteh ast!
