At what point do you say forget it and sleep in?

That would probably be the most important time to go to Church  Wink

I had like 2.5hours of sleep, and I tend to arrive on Armenian time (more or less).  At least I have been getting 6 hours of sleep a night lately.

I went through that for a little while. What helps is if I can try to get to bed just 30-60 minutes earlier than I've been used to. What this means is I have a little extra time to lie there and take some deep breaths, let myself relax... and it happens. This week, I made a little extra time to get up for church in the morning - and I did. I woke up today and it wasn't too bad. Smiley Hope it helps.

At that point when you realize you're too tired for focusing on prayer.

I did that most of this week. That's why I got at least 6 hours of sleep. I'm terrible about doing that normally.

Good rule of thumb.

I ate, and I'm going back to bed. Post any Palm Sunday suggestions you like here.

Heh. Liturgy is at 10:30. On weekdays I get up at 6:30; on weekends my son comes to poke me around 7:30-8, if I'm lucky. So in a way I do get to sleep in and get to Liturgy on time. Cheesy

Well, if you missed Armenian Palm Sunday, you can catch Coptic Palm Sunday.  I think it's April 28.   Smiley

Really?  Cheesy They don't have a different time? I thought I remembered going to a Holy Week service the same time as other western Holy Weeks and Armenian Holy Week a couple years ago. Is that a feature of them using a different calendar that they line up every once in a while but not the rest of the time?

Kyrie eleison


« Reply #12 on: March 25, 2013, 04:23:12 PM »

it's april 28th, and it is a beautiful liturgy with really ornate palm shapes that people (often the children) make on the saturday. try to get to the saturday as well, there is a special liturgy then too.
then there is a break for lunch (or people bring packed lunch - vegan, remember as it's still lent on the old calendar!), then the holy week services (at least 2 every day) start on sunday afternoon.

the first service is around 2 hours and involves lovely prayers and prostrations and the singing of a funky tune called 'thoak ta te gom', which is 'yours is the power and the glory and the blessing and the majesty', usually sung in coptic, with the last chorus (refrain) in both arabic and the local language.
it is one of my favourite hymns, as it has a funky tune and is repeated many times, so you eventually can learn it (at least by the end of holy week).

may God bless your holy week, all catholics, armenian orthodox and others commemorating it around this time.

PS:
as for sleeping in, there are 2 'cures' to be used at the same time:
1. form a habit of going to bed early every day.
2. buy an alarm clock (they are modern inventions that combine the clever marking of time, with a little device that makes a noise at a set time. if you haven't seen one before, try google or ebay).
