Or insert slivers of garlic in the meaty bits in the legs, shoulders, backstraps, rub all over with salt, a little pepper, oregano and olive oil, and, if roasting a whole beast on a spit, rub the inside of the ribcage with the above, add two or three quartered lemons (with the rind on) in the ribcage before sewing it up, then cook. Every so often, baste with a mixture of red wine, lemon juice and olive oil. Divine.
Ok! I'm done! *drooling*.  :PThis is food porn for me guys. I'm getting off this thread! :o

The changing of the calendar had been neither discussed, nor will be discussed on the Holy Synod meetings, said the spokesman of the Holy Synod Metropolitan Neophyte of Rousse.

Bravo to the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.  I hope it comes to fruition.  Now, if the other Revised Julian Orthodox churches would follow suit, I think that would go a long way to strengthening intra-Orthodox union against the onslaughts and dangers of ecumenism.

Amen.

I don't particularly care whether we use the Revised Julian or Old Julian calendar. However, I think it's important that a single calendar is used for both movable and unmovable feasts, and that the whole Church feasts and fasts together.

Apparently, it's now a dead issue, at least in the eyes of the Bulgarian people.

From the article:  Only 13.63% of the polled agree to celebrate Christmas on January 7 and only if this is decided by a Church and People?s Council.

Interesting. Thanks for the update.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
