'''[[Pascha]]''' ({{lang-el|Πασχα}}), also called '''Easter''', is the feast of the '''[[Resurrection]] of the [[Jesus Christ|Lord]]'''. ''Pascha'' is a transliteration of the Greek word, which is itself a transliteration of the Hebrew ''pesach'', both words meaning ''[[Passover]]''(A minority of English-speaking Orthodox prefer the English word 'Pasch.')

+
Pascha normally falls either one or five weeks later than the feast as observed by Christians who follow the [[Gregorian calendar]].  However, occasionally the two observances coincide, and some years they can be two, four, or six weeks apart (but never three). The reason for the difference is that the older [[Julian Calendar]] uses a different [[paschalion]], the formula for calculating the date of Pascha. This formula was determined by the [[First Ecumenical Council]].

If Pascha falls on [[March 25]], the date of the [[Annunciation]], the resultant celebration is termed ''[[Kyriopascha]]''.

St. Tikhon of Moscow

The ROCOR and the OCA have a complicated history of cooperation, rivalry, and sometimes outright hostility. These two jurisdictions, the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR) and the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), both have their origins in the Church of Russia (a.k.a. the Moscow Patriarchate or MP), and their histories as clearly distinct and identifiable entities both stem from the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in the early 20th century.

Recently featured: Pascha, Diocese of Washington and New York (OCA), Book of Kells, Archangel Gabriel, Alexis of Wilkes-Barre, Theophany, Nativity, Theological School of Halki, Alexander Nevsky, Episcopi vagantes, Joseph the Hesychast, Eucharist.
