Easter at the now-empty tomb

.

From a (briefly) sunlit Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also know as Anastasis (Church of the Resurrection) -- greetings for a glorious Easter to Christians near and far!

I can't imagine being at the center of so much religious history.

Usually the Easter/Passover season is much shorter. But with Easter today, Passover at the end of April, and Orthodox Easter on May 1, we have these spring holidays for over a month.

Pace yourself! :)

The dome of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is heavenly (literally and metaphorically).
