Great entry, as usual. You do have a gift for this sort of thing Mister Jim! BTW, the Father most probably did say "enjoy the feast." Let me guess that you first venerated the feast day icon, then kissed the Holy Bible, you stood for the Father to sign the Cross on your forehead (while saying "enjoy the feast") and then received holy bread that was dipped in wine. Right? In any case, that's what happened to me last night as we held the Vigil for the Nativity of Theotokos (new calendar). As an aside, I truly love Vigil services as they are long enough and rich enough to transport me to another realm. Certainly much better than anything else on the TV!
