Through their intercessions, may we obtain from Christ God, the Great Mercy!

Happy feast!

Yeah, after the several weeks of Lent, and then the equally long Paschal season, Peter and Paul's fast always seems very short.

It does, and especially when I haven't been participating in the food aspects of the fasts I find it's not as much of the feeling of crossing the finish line when the fasts are over.

Yes you have. Every pregnant woman fasts by definition.

True.  I was going to emphasize "not the food aspects" but then again I couldn't eat anything but quesadillas for about five months.  It's a reverse fast.  Wink

I neglected to see this post until now.  Thank you for it.  I've become particularly devoted to the Holy and Chief Apostle Paul, who is the patron saint of my beloved parish.  The day was celebrated appropriately at our parish by our diocesan archhierarch, His Eminence, the Most Reverend Maximos of Pittsburgh, presiding priest Fr. Costas Keares, Assistant to the Metropolitan Fr. Stelios, and area priests.  Between Great Vespers and the Archhierarchcal Divine Liturgy, there were 8 sets of Blessing of the Five Loaves Services this year!
