Greetings everyone. I have not been posting as much as usual due to Lent and various things taking up my time, but I have been thinking about everyone and praying for you all. Here is a video I've posted to encourage those of us who are having trouble with Lent this year and feeling perhaps down, or that it's not helping, or have fallen off track with fasting, etc. It's only about 8 minutes long, and is unscripted.

in Christ,
Fr. Anastasios

Father, that's a wonderful lesson.

May I "share" it on Facebook?

That is a very nice video. Not to lessen your message, but the captions that they put on it are really quite funny/strange. I didn't turn on the captions for laughs. I normally watch all videos with captions because my house is so loud (4 kids, 2 dogs). The captions for this video are spot on in places and just strange in other places. Can you as the video publisher correct captions out of curiosity? I am not saying that you should/need to, I am just curious as to whether or not you are able to access the captions at all?

LOL! 

Quinault! I've never had the captions on, but, went back to see what you were talking about!  Oh my!

At 1:24, Fr. Anastasios says,  "When we are trying to realign our life to be more towards our Savior Christ"

...and the caption reads - "Real and I like to be more for north towards our savior price."  Smiley

Wow, I know what you mean. I guess this caption thing is really at the experimental stages.

At 1:53 it says, "red hats, t-shirts, orthodox church, and we're gonna have a great time" lol?

also, 'holy week services' is translated as 'hollywood services'  Roll Eyes

Now I understand why so many people arrived at church wearing red hats and t-shirts!

The captions can be a GREAT tool if you can edit them as the video poster.
