Blessed Feast of Ascension to All
« on: May 27, 2009, 11:23:59 PM »
You ascended in glory, O Christ our God,
granting joy to Your Disciples by the promise of the Holy Spirit.
Through the blessing, they were assured
that You are the Son of God,
the Redeemer of the world!


- Troparion/Apolytikion of the Feast in Tone 4


When You had fulfilled the dispensation for our sake,
and united earth to heaven:
You ascended in glory, O Christ our God,
not being parted from those who love You,
but remaining with them and crying://
"I am with you, and there is no one against you!"


- Kontakion of the Feast in Tone 6 (Plagal of Tone 2 for you Greek folk)

Amen!  The importance of the Ascension is all-too-often very underrated.

Christ is Ascended!
From earth to heaven!

Has anyone ever noticed that these 40 days go by INFINITELY faster than Lent's 40 days?  Just thought it was an interesting feeling. 
I got nothing.
I forgot the maps
March 27th and May 30th 2010 were my Ordination dates, please forgive everything before that

Christ is Ascended!

From Earth to Heaven!

Some I know are trying to promote this as a greeting (until Pentacost, when it becomes "The Spirit has descended!" R: "From Heaven to Earth!").
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 blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

A blessed Feast Day to all!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

He have the Romanian greets for Resurection : Hristos a Inviat (Christ has Ressurected)
                                                               Adevarat (ca) a Inviat (Indeed He has Resurrected)
and for Ascension we have , we greet : Hristos S-a Inaltat!(Christ is Ascended -i think in english)
                                                      Adevarat s-a inaltat!(Indeed it is Ascended)

I have never heard any of these Greetings in Greek.  I'm not disputing them - just never heard them said in Greek.

I can't have gone because I had compulsory conscription medical examinations.
