When You descended to death, O Immortal Life, then, the dazzling light of Your divinity destroyed Hades....
The Director and the Staff of Volos Academy for Theological Studies wish you a Happy Easter!
Let the destruction of Hades by "the dazzling light of the Divinity"
mark the beginning of the liberation of the whole World
from any form of slavery and from decline, diseases and death.
