THE PASCHAL GREETING

Filed in Fr.KnowItAll by on May 5, 2011 0 Comments • views: 2478

The Paschal greeting is a custom among Orthodox Christians, consisting of a greeting and response. Instead of “hello” or its equivalent, one is to greet another person with “Christ is Risen!” The response is “Truly, He is risen!” (or “Indeed, He is risen!”). This greeting is used during liturgical services and informally at other times, starting with the feast of Pascha and lasting until Ascension, a period of forty days!
