Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen! Alleluia!

In Poland, the duty of standing guard at the symbolic tomb typically falls on the local fire brigade. The members stand watch at the tomb arrayed in their dress uniforms and in the role of the Roman soldiers (Matthew 27:62-66) whom Pilate sent to guard the tomb. At the Resurrection Procession, when the Eucharist is raised up from the symbolic tomb and Wesoły nam (This joyous day) is intoned, the “soldiers” fall to the ground (Matthew 28:2-4).
