Blessed Triodion to all!
« on: February 07, 2009, 06:03:29 PM »
With the coming of sunset (which has already come for most of the world), we've passed into the Triodion period.  A blessed preparation for the Great Fast and the Great Feast for all!  May it be free from temptation (Purple Demons), malice, and all other sin; but instead full of grace, peace (God's peace, the "peace from above" "that passes all understanding"), charity, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and Love (yes, I know I already said charity...).
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

Lord, have mercy!
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Lord have mercy and walk with us.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
