The Resurrection

The Resurrection

The Resurrection of the Lord, the most important celebration of the Orthodox faith, the win of life over death, is celebrated with particular brilliance all over Peloponnisos.

A festive and spring celebration, interwoven with the resurrection of nature, has a different character in every area. Each place has its own customs that make the celebration unique. At times more impressive and effusive and other times more melodic and pious. However, everywhere, throughout the Holy Week the churches are full with people, who participate with emotion to the Passions of Christ and the culmination of the Divine Drama, the Crucifixion. Thoughtfully and piously they follow the Epitaph, and chant expecting the celebration of the night of the Holy Saturday, the Resurrection, keeping the light lit, in a climate of love and optimism.
