Mt. St. Macrina Cemetery is a Sacred Place

where all who have gone before us await their glorious resurrection in Christ. 
We believe and  bear witness that "Christ is risen from the dead, and has conquered death"!  

We believe that we also will rise to eternal life on the last day.

A cemetery is a place not only for the dead, but also very much a place for the living.
             It is a space not only to grieve, remember, and pray for loved ones, it is a sacred space to reflect on our unique pilgrimage to the heart of God.

EASTER HOMILY: St. John Chrysostom

 

Let all pious people and lovers of God rejoice in the splendor of this feast; let the wise blissfully enter in the joy of their Lord; let those who have borne the burden of Lent now receive their pay and those who have toiled since the first hour, let them now receive their due reward; let any who came after the third hour be grateful to join in the feast, and those who may have come after the sixth, let them not be afraid of being too late; for the Lord is gracious and He receives the last even as the first.  He gives rest to those who come on the eleventh hour as well as to those who have toiled since the first; yes, He has pity on the last and He serves the first; He rewards the one and praises the effort.

Come you all: enter into the joy of your Lord.  You the first and you the last, receive alike your reward; you rich and you poor, dance together; you sober and you weaklings celebrate the day; you who have kept the fast and you who have not, rejoice today. The table is richly loaded; enjoy this royal banquet. The calf is a fatted one: let no one grieve over his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed; let no one weep over his sins, for pardon has shone from the grave; let no one fear death, for the death of our Savior has set us free:  He has destroyed it by enduring it, He has despoiled Hades by going down into its kingdom, He has angered it by allowing it to taste of his flesh.

When Isaias foresaw all this, he cried out: "O Hades, you have been angered by encountering Him in the nether world."  Hades is angered because frustrated, it is angered because it has been reduced to naught, it is angered because it is now captive.  It seized a body, and lo!  It encountered heaven; it seized the visible, and was overcome by the invisible.

O death, where is your sting?  O Hades, where is your victory?  Christ is risen and you are abolished.  Christ is risen and the demons are cast down.  Christ is risen and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen and life is freed.  Christ is risen and the tomb is emptied of the dead: for Christ, being risen from the dead, has become the Leader and Reviver of those who had fallen asleep.  To Him be glory and power for ever and ever.  Amen!
