I break my fast a wee bit early to wish my sisters and brothers on the Julian Calendar an early Blessed Feast for the Nativity of our Lord.

This morning at our Greek parish; this evening at our Carpatho-Russian parish; tomorrow morning at the nearby Ukrainian parish. We love "American" Orthodoxy!

Merry Christmas from Australia!

Glory to God in the highest: and on earth peace to men of good will. (St. Luke 2:14 DRB)

Thank you for your greetings and may you all have a beautiful Holy Feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ and remember to pray for us please.

Some of us from our little mission at Ningi, Queensland travelled to the newly acquired (former Methodist) Coptic Orthodox Church of St. Mark and St. George at Strathpine (north Brisbane) for the liturgy on the eve of the Holy Nativity.

At the end I commented to the Deacon that I saw a crowd of every tribe and language and tongue and nation. There weren't really that many people there but the small hall was fairly full and mix of races was, well- Coptic, Arabic, Ango-Australian, Aboriginal, Sudanese, Ethiopian (perhaps Eritrean as I didn't ask) and they're just the ones I'm aware of!

May the Church of the Lord God grow in this land and all lands and may false religion be aswaged in all the world as we rejoice in birth of the true Son of God, the Son of Mary, the saintly virgin. Amen.

Technically the Coptic Orthodox Church isn't on the Old Calendar (at least not the Julian Calendar). Actually on the Coptic Calendar Christmas (the 29th of Kiahk) is tomorrow (ie the 8th on the Gregorian) due to the leap day being in September and not February. But in order maintain unity with the rest of the Orthodox Christian world we still observe the Nativity Feast on the 25th of December according to the Julian Calendar.

Peace, pray for me please; and merry Christmas to you too Cool

I'm actually on the New Calendar, so today was Theophany for me.  Great feast, nonetheless.

Have a blessed day anyway!

A Blessed Nativity Day to those of the Julian Calendar...

As I celebrate the Nativity of our Lord, I am so thankful to be Orthodox.  Who would have ever thought that a Southern Baptist (seminary educated and all) from rural Alabama would be in an Orthodox Church on January 7 celebrating the birth of the Savior?  How wonderful it is to be in His Church!  I am both humbled and grateful for this great blessing.  Merry Christmas to all!
