Awaiting the Resurrection of the Dead and the Life of the Age to Come

Note: Of course, this is all in Greek.
But to all of us, it is a meditation on life and death,
and what our Orthodox Church teaches us- that this short earthly transient life is but 
a preparation for Eternal Life.
Here is not our end or our meaning. It is to be with God.
"Grant me, O Lord,  the Home Country of my heart's desiring,
making me again, a citizen of Paradise".

A typical monastic funeral/burial  on Mount Athos.
