Clean Monday - March 10th
« on: February 24, 2003, 10:45:33 AM »
In preparation for Lent, the OrthodoxChristianity.net board will be down on March 10th, Clean Monday, in order for us to spend the day devoted to prayer instead of fun board recreation.

It will open promptly on 12am on Tuesday morning.


Thanks and a spiritual Lent for all.

purple and white - OK this RC thinks it would be a good idea - just as long as the purple is not too dark for ease of visibility

Purple *AND WHITE*?  No, just purple (and maybe a dark blue or maroon).  White is for Pascha.   ;D

Re: liturgical color here for Great Lent. I say nay because:

1. Technically the EO churches have no set liturgical colors, even though many follow the Latin pattern of purple for the season.

2. Both colors used by EOxy during Great Lent - red and purple - would turn

PINK

if lightened enough to make them usable as a background here. As we are neither Communist (pinko) nor homosexualist (pink triangle), I think that would be unwise.

Maybe the black for Forgiveness Vespers could be lightened to grey?

Serge<<. Technically the EO churches have no set liturgical colors, even though many follow the Latin pattern of purple for the season.>>

Of course, you're right, Patriarch Serge.  All that the rubrics say concerning liturgical colors is that bright colors are to be used for Pascha and dark colors for Great Lent.  But green is a favorite liturgical color for Pentecost by all Slavic Orthodox (and blue for feasts of the Mother of God and red for the Nativity Fast in parishes that can afford a muliplicity of vestments).

Must say I like the thought of Purple - but make sure I can see it on my laptop screen please ;)- but it will need to be a fairly deep purple with white print , or a lilac with black print for ease of viewing I think

Try it and you can be sure that we will let you know exactly what we think  :P :P

Hey March 10 - come on you are a week behindhand there surely :D :D :D :P :P

How about instead of making the whole site purple, why don't we change the color of that big 'ol cross* on the title bar.  That would be a fairly visible reminder and no need to muck about with the rest of the site.

*being a southern man, I am required to use the adjective big 'ol at least once a month.  Thanks for bearing with me.  :)

Don't change the color of the cross - it'd clash with the rest of the board.

Hey David, luckily for you when I made the original 14 logos for this site one of them had a purple cross. So if they choose to use it, its already made!

Yeah, pretty soon we'll have to change the colors for every single part of the year. That will get hectic. How about we all just realize that Lent is Lent, and use the board properly.

Well, we *are* a priestly people, so we should change our vestments to be in sync with the liturgical year!   ;D

I think we should have a folder/thread called "Great Lent" for discussions on the greatest time of the church year. And since we are priestly people, we could change it as the year goes along.

I agree with anastasios - no changes, please.

Some of you are beginning to sound like some of the old fuddie-duddies who are giving our new priest a hard time over some minute changes (even changes for the better, or changes to be in concert with the rubrics) in going in queues to venerate the icons, receive Holy Communion, etc.  They had our young matushka in tears Sunday.   :(
