The funeral bier with the icon of Chris is carried around the Church. We follow it around the church, much like a funeral procession and re-enter the church by going under the bier. This act reminds us of our baptism and our union with Christ as he goes down into Hades. This beautiful survives brings us to the tomb, like the myrrh-bearing women to await the resurrection.

[Orthodox Easter is a week later than Western Easter this year.]
