Easter greetings to Orthodox friends

.
 "When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint his body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, 'Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?' 
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away."
Mark 16:1-4

Do you see the angel in blue, pushing back the rolling stone with just one hand?

Here is the entrance to the tomb (one of the tombs in Jerusalem) seen from above.

Wishing Orthodox Christians a blessed Pascha, joyous Easter!

Thank you Dina, from one of your Orthodox friend. I have never seen one of those ancient tombs quite like that one, amazing!

Mary M being the first disciple to meet the resurrected Jesus is one of my favorite bits of John's gospel. Interesting to see what a real tomb looks like.
