Blessed Nativity Fast to all!
« on: November 15, 2010, 03:54:09 PM »
For those on the Revised Julian Calendar, a Blessed Nativity Fast!  May the Lord strengthen, enlighten, and bless your journey, so that we may together celebrate His Nativity According to the Flesh in closer union with Him!

For those on the Not-Revised Julian Calendar, we'll post well wishes here in 13 days.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

:D  I look forward to Your greetings, Father, in 13 days!

In the meantime, wishing those who begin their fast today - a peaceful, quiet and spiritually edifying fast!
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
