What are you saying? "Don, that's all Greek to me.
And you'd be right. It is Greek. Christos Anesti (Christ is Risen) is the greeting given to someone to celebrate and acknowledge the Risen Christ and the respondent returns with Alithos Anesti (Truly He is Risen).
You might also be asking what this has to do with wine. Well, as in some of my previous posts, "absolutely nothing." I might also add that I'm not Greek either. For those of you who may not know, today is the day when the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates Easter, or as it's sometimes referred to as Pascha.
A lot of people hear Orthodox and they think Greek, but there is no central doctrinal or governance authority analogous to the Roman Catholic Church's pope. There are several Patriarchates within the Eastern Orthodox Church, Greek being one. For now, that's the end of my history lesson.
Whatever day you celebrate Easter, may you find joy in Him and His teachings and that God loves us all as it says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
Peace be with you and yours always. CHRISTOS ANESTI - CHRIST IS RISEN
