Clean Monday board shut down
« on: March 04, 2006, 05:57:32 PM »
Dear in Christ,

As always, on Monday, Clean Monday, the board will be shut down from 12 midnight Monday (or maybe a little earlier depending on which admin goes to bed last) and 12 midnight Tuesday, Eastern Standard Time here in the US.

Please use the time you save from reading our site and pray instead.

Happy Fasting.  Tomorrow we will post the forgiveness thread 2006.

Anastasios

PS To our Non Chalcedonian friends or any Finnish Eastern Orthodox on the New Calendar, or any Roman Catholics or other visitors, pardon the inconvenience :)

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

LOL "Pardon the inconvenience?" Haha more like get on the real calendar :)

Just joking..just joking.

Board will go down at EXACTLY 11:59PM on Sunday night and will reopen at 12am Tuesday morning.  If you start writing a post, know that you will likely lose it if not submitted prior!

As usual, those of us ahead of Greenwich Mean Time are forgotten ;)
I'm heading off to Vespers in an hour, so I wish you all a profitable Fast in which you "crush the heads of unseen dragons".
See y'all on Palm Sunday!

Might I ask, if you decide to take time away from the board during Great Lent, that perhaps you put a little something in your signature at the bottom to indicate so.  It is of great help to other posters who may be awaiting an answer to a question.

Thanks!

Καλή Σαρακοστή!  (literally "Good 40!")
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.
