Empty Tomb

Along the trail on the backside of our property is the shrine of the Empty Tomb. One of our parishioners spotted this iconic arrangement of stones last spring after a large storm had cleared a tree blocking it from view. Inside has been placed an icon of the angel announcing Christ’s resurrection with the words, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!”
(Luke 24:5-6).

Truly this is our hope-filled hymn of vistory: Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by His death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!
