I took this photo on St. Thomas Sunday.

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.

Pascha Photos:

Holy Saturday.  Yes....we bless baskets on Saturday.  It began as a custom only for the elderly and those with very young children, who simply cannot attend services until 4 a.m. to have their baskets blessed.  However, they are forbidden from eating from them until after midnight.  :)





Note the kid in the back....I was sure he would pull down the entire plashchanitsia (shroud)....  Oy.

We were pleasantly surprised Saturday afternoon, after Liturgy, by the visit of our bishop.  He was driving to another parish and stopped by for an hour to visit with us.  Only a handful of people remained behind, but, for those of us who did wait, his visit made the celebration even more joyous.

Pascha





My goddaughters


















My godsons are the first ones on each side.  :)




It was VERY cold...so, the baskets got blessed in the church hall, instead of outside.

Bonus:  I'm sure she'll cook up a mean pot of borsch, just as soon as she can reach the stove top!  ;)

I'm tall, I've helped short people with things like that before!
