Holy Week
« on: April 20, 2011, 10:09:27 AM »
To all of my Roman and Eastern Catholic brothers and sisters, may you have a blessed and spiritually rewarding Holy Week as all Christians across the planet prepare themselves this week for the joyous day of the Resurrection - the 'Velikden' - the Great Feast! Let us put aside our petty and not-so-petty disagreements at this time and contemplate in prayer upon Christ's passion, suffering and glorious Resurrection.

Indeed, let us keep the fast in the unity of our devotion to our common Lord, and when the time comes, celebrate his glorious resurrection.

I am happy to be a ditto-head for my wise friend, Podkarpatska.
