Христос воскрес!

Christ Our Pascha #999:

The Risen Christ, our Pascha, is the New Man, for by his Resurrection, death is overcome. In his glorified body, his Divine Person is the bearer of the new creation--of the new heaven and earth that God created in the beginning, but which humanity--through sin--subjected to transitory fading and vanity. The renewal of creation--"Behold, I make all things new" (Rev 21:5)--begins with the Resurrection of Christ and passes through the spiritual rebirth and renewal of each of us: "If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation" (2 Cor 5:17).
