Title: Dormition Fast
Post by: Hypo-Ortho on August 01, 2003, 09:23:51 AM
Dear friends in Christ, brothers and sisters all!

For those of us Orthodox Christians on the Revised Julian (or "New") Calendar, today we begin the Fast of the Theotokos in preparation for the Great Feast of the Dormition of our Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary on August 15.  I pray that all of us may have a spiritually profitable fast, one very difficult to keep in the middle of the summer for those of us in Northern climes!

Please keep in your prayers in a special way during the next few days my godson, the Reader Stephen, who is recovering from surgery on Wednesday.  Thank you.

In Christ,
Hypo-Ortho

If this is like other lists and boards I belong to, the fasting periods can bring out a lot of passion and angst, so we may want to wait a few minutes before we hit the post button if we are feeling passionately about a subject.

Brother Hypo,

I will add your Godson to my prayers.
