On this third day of the Easter Season, Easter Tuesday,
take a moment to pray along with the Morning Matins of the Orthodox tradition while contemplating
Fra Angelico's painting of the women at the tomb below.
Having beheld the Resurrection of Christ, let us worship the holy Lord Jesus, the only sinless one.
We venerate Thy cross, O Christ, and Thy holy Resurrection we praise and glorify.
For Thou art our God, and we know none other than Thee.
We call on Thy name. O come, all ye faithful, let us venerate Christ's holy Resurrection.
For behold, through the cross joy hath come into all the world.
Ever blessing the Lord, we praise his Resurrection:
for by enduring the cross, he hath slain death by death.
