Wishing everyone a blessed Holy Week
« on: April 20, 2008, 06:14:39 PM »
With 7pm quickly approaching here in the Eastern US, Holy Week is about to begin with the Matins service of Holy Monday.  A blessed Holy Week to all, and may it lead to a Joyful and Glorious Pascha!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

A blessed Holy Week to all Eastern/Oriental Orthodox Christians!!!
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

A blessed week to all, full of rigor and growth, tragedy and triumph!

May all those of the Julian Calendar have a blessed Holy Week...

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Well, I know it's Holy Week when I hear the Hymn of Kassiana. :'(  The Lord's blessings upon your Holy Week, all of you.
