New Fire is kindled
The Paschal Candle is lighted from the new Fire and placed in its stand in the Sanctuary.
The night has come, wherein the bonds of death are loosed, and Christ harrowing hell rose again in triumph!
From the Paschal Candle, the altar lights are lighted.
ALLELUIA! Christ is Risen!
The True light that enlightens every man has come into the
world. The darkness cannot quench it. From His fullness have we all received grace upon grace!
