Thanks for the messages. Maybe you are right. Lent is coming. I will cool off. I'll be back on Ash Wednesday (one week from today), but I will be adding something to my Lenten penances: no polemical discussions for me.

May God bless you all until then.

I hope your preparation for lent is a blessed one, and that your time of preparing for the Lord's Resurrection assists you in any way that you need!

Well at least you've got the Super Bowl (Angry Cry) to cheer you up.

Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness, but our Lent begins very late this year. Cheesefare Sunday is March 2, and Great Lent begins March 3 (New Calendar...not sure about the Old).

Blessed Great Lent to all our friends in the West.

The movable feasts associated with Pascha are the same on both calendars.

Sorry, Y-man, but I think you're a week early on this one. Wink  Cheesefare/Forgiveness Sunday is March 9 with Clean Monday to follow on March 10.  I do believe, though, that Mardi Gras--STAY OUT OF NEW ORLEANS!--is this Tuesday, with Ash Wednesday the next day.

Boy is my face red Shocked

Great Lent begins today for Melkite Catholics in the U.S. When I wrote the above, I apparently forgot that  Melkite Catholics in the U.S. celebrate the western date for Easter, and not the Orthodox Easter (unless the two just happen to coincide).

Would I be right in wishing you a blessed feast of Sts. Simeon and Anna today?

Almost - it was yesterday, the 3rd - but that's very thoughtful of you!

Doh! I was looking at the pink squares on my St. Tikhon's calendar, which indicate a fast day--but I forgot that Cheesefare Week is colored pink as well.

And along with New Orleans, all of the Spanish-speaking world is celebrating Carnival tomorrow, so it might be best to stay out of the Western Hemisphere this week.

Well, I'm back.

I had a very blessed week. All was grace. I spent much of it in retreat with some Assumptionist friends at their center. As you might know, the Augustinians of the Assumption are known for their engagement with the East. Much of the art on the walls of the Assumptionist house was Eastern. The room I slept in was adorned with an icon of Christ Pantokrator and also a Greek depiction of the Dormition of the Theotokos. One of my friends there, a seminarian, carries around a prayer rope and prays the Jesus Prayer. How about that, eh? He's going to be a wonderful priest.

I repent of my lack of charity here in the past, and I sincerely beg you all for your forgiveness. I will not let it happen again.

I am reminded of the end of Epistle reading I heard at Mass this past Sunday, Quinquagesima Sunday:

"And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity."

(St. Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 13)

I am very eager to begin Lent. I don't know why, but I feel such joy in anticipation of the penances and devotions I plan to perform. Joy, mixed with sorrow over the sins we have committed that led Christ to die on that Cross. I pray that, with the assistance of grace, the crosses we all bear bring us closer to Christ.

May the light of our Lord shine brightly upon you all this week. God bless.

May God forgive us all (which is an Orthodox way of saying I forgive you).

I can't help but feeling that there is some hypocrisy here, considering the many-page rant at the CAF (and the crowing over the conversions EO posters there had accomplished) in a thread elsewhere in this forum. I saw the CAF Eastern forum before the deluge---it wasn't pretty.

Venjamin,

My intention was to clarify, not proselytize. The mention of my personal experience was just an aside. If I had known I would be taken that way, I would not have mentioned it. But the statement did beg for clarification.

Lubeltri,

Just curious, who are you at CAF (or are you)?

Personally, even if you were proselytizing (and I don't recall any glaring example), Orthodoxy can take it.  I'd prefer honesty than walking on egg shells.

Hi ialmistry,

I don't think I had a username. I lurked there for a while (and still do occasionally). I do have a username on the Defenders of the Catholic Faith forum. I am Baeda Venerabilis. If I am listed on CAF, it would be that name.
