Caption

The date of Easter (for the Western Churches) is closely linked to the equinox. The Easter day is the first Sunday after the 14th day of the lunar month (the nominal full moon) that falls on or after 21st of March (nominally the day of the vernal equinox).

On Easter Sunday Christians all over the world celebrate the resurrection of Christ as the victory over death and the beginning of a new life and a new world. In the ancient words of the Roman-Catholic Easter Vigil:

"Christ yesterday and today, the beginning and the end. Alpha and Omega, all time belongs to him and all the ages. To him be glory and power through every age for ever."

The panorama is taken after the service on Easter Sunday in our parish church. Under the altar we have constructed a little "grave". On Good Friday this "grave" is closed by a rock. On Easter Sunday you can see it open and brightly lit.
