Oh, those who are enslaved will make their excuses as the Psalmist states, but the breaking of the cycle and the unity of the Heavenly and Earthly worship is the true evil of the thrice cursed new calendar, and those that promulgate it.
Oh that we could all be so free from sin and from the grasp of the evil one as you, Punch
I get that you're upset that some feasts were dropped when the Revised Julian Calendar was proposed. I get it. But what do you suggest is a better alternative, since the Julian calendar is mathematically incorrect, and becomes more and more illogical as the centuries go on?
For the record, I happen to celebrate feasts on the Old Calendar because the parish I currently attend and grew up in never switched. Knowing my parish as I do, it was really more out of the fact that we're a bunch of old curmudgeons that don't like change, more than any theological defense. However, at various times in my life I have belonged to New Calendar parishes without issue.
I honestly don't understand why people from both groups can't get together and put together a calender that is both mathematically and theologically correct. I mean, aren't the Greeks the father of modern Math? And aren't some of the greatest mathematicians in the world Russian? And didn't the Arabs give us our number system? I mean, if anyone should be able to figure this out, it should be the Orthodox! lol
