Christ is Risen! Truly, He is Risen!
This is the day of resurrection. Let us be illumined by the Feast. Let us embrace each other. Let us call “Brothers” even those that hate us, and forgive all by the resurrection, and so let us cry: Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life.

So I'd like to attend on Saturday evening, but I have never been to an Orthodox liturgy. Do I go to the Matins at 11 or the beginning of the liturgy at midnight?
