By His Resurrection Christ has defeated death, overthrew the devil, given life to those in the tombs and opened the gates of paradise to His faithful ones. Because Christ has risen from the dead, Orthodox Christians do not fear death. Physical death is no longer seen as an end, but as a transition from this earthly, finite life to a heavenly, eternal life in God’s Heavenly Kingdom. And so, we Orthodox Christians find a unique sense of peace in our consecrated cemetery. Where modern secular society portrays the cemetery as a place of death and gloom, we see it as a place of life and hopeful expectation. Where popular culture glamorizes the cemetery as a dark, dreadful place to fear and avoid, we Orthodox believers frequently visit the cemetery and even have picnics there with our family and friends, because Christ “has trampled down death by (His) death and upon those in the tombs He has bestowed Life.”
