Board shutdown Thur-Sat
« on: March 30, 2010, 10:35:29 AM »
The board will close down sometime Holy Thursday night/Holy Friday morning, whenever I get back from the Passion Gospels and have a chance to do it (around 11 pm Thursday night Eastern Daylight Time).

The board will reopen on Holy Saturday night around 8pm Eastern Daylight Time before I leave for the Paschal Vigil, so that our friends in Europe and Asia will have a chance to log on and greet each other without having to wait for me to recover from the Vigil and Agape Vespers to log on and do it :)

Praying for you all as you pray for me,

Fr Anastasios

Yes, Father.  I am new to the Forum and I like it already, and I think a good bit of the good feeling I get here has to do with your way of managing high spirited souls  :angel:

I live in the Eastern US time Zone.  The board is set to that, but there is a bug in the software that makes it so I have to manually set Daylight Saving Time.  But, I haven't gotten around to that yet... :)

You certainly picked a beautiful icon of the Harrowing of Hades for the board.
"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"

Thanks. I was looking for an icon of the Resurrection that had blue. It was the only one I could find, but boy was it pretty.

Actually, we'll be celebrating Pascha around this time in about 32,000 years according to the Julian calendar, so this thread must be a time machine.
