Quote of the day

What grandeur is the Divine Liturgy! When God looks upon His humble minister, how much does he feel the majesty of the Liturgy; how much do those who are commemorated profit! How much does God honor man, to descend with the angelic orders in every Liturgy and to nourish man with His all-holy Body and Blood!

— Elder Ephraim of Philotheou Mount Athos

Preparing for Holy Week and Pascha

As we all prepare for Holy Week and Pascha, if you have not already done so, try to make arrangements so that you can attend as many of the Passion Week and Paschal services as possible...

Perhaps time will have to be taken off from work or schedules altered in other ways, and it is best to plan for this ahead. The services of Passion Week and Pascha are the most important in the Christian Year and every conscientious Orthodox should try his or her best to prepare for them, participate in them, to confess, and to receive the Holy Mysteries.
