Paschal greetings 2009
« on: April 10, 2009, 09:29:54 AM »
I'd like to wish all best for our members from Finland and non-Orthodox (yet) who in three days will be celebrating Holy Pascha - the Feast of feasts. May resurrected Christ bless you on the following year. I hope you will be able to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ in happiness with your families.

A blessed Pascha to those celebrating this weekend, and a fruitful Holy Week to those who aren't.

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.  Hosanna to the Son of David!
"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"

You don't have to say wishes to non-Orthodox but...

Didn't our Orthodox brothers and sisters in Finland and Czech Republic (one diocese, I was told) celebrate tommorrow Holy Pascha? Aren't we in communion with them? Don't we share faith with them? Aren't we together members of One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church - the Body of Christ? They don't celebrate Pascha together with us. Nevertheless we can pass them greetings.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.

if you spit on it, it will be put out;
