We went for cake after church, and, as it is my special day, we indulged in this. (Fasters, click at your own risk! Wink)

I'm New Calendar, so it's the feast.

Also, it's my name day. My church name's Maria (driver's license says Donna).

Great, I get the second saddest day of the year.  Undecided

The Holy Virgin's entrance into Heaven is a sad day?

Dying is sad.

The other worst day is Great Friday. Every year, like clockwork, I get physically ill. I can't handle it.

Greetings with the feast!

I moved, and my new parish is new calendar.  It is very strange to get used to, but I am thankful for the Church's Feasts and Fasts whenever they occur.

I always chalked that up to a case of the vapors.

Apparently not just the belt.  A local church has an icon with a relic embedded in it, which I venerated last Thursday:



It is a piece of her burial shroud.
