20 April 2014. It’s Holy Easter! HOORAY!

00 Happy Easter 01. Happy Acolytes. 20.04.14.

______________________________

It’s a time of celebration and FUN… this is the central day for all real Christians. This is what our faith is all about. Don’t have a long face… this is a joyous time. That’s why so many people reject Christianity; it looks as though some believers were not only weaned on pickles, they’ve been their constant diet ever since. SMILE and pass the pierogies… we’re Christians… that’s what we do! … Yes, I WILL have seconds on the galumpkis, if you please.

19 April 2014. This Year in Jerusalem… The Holy Fire Appears, Yet Again…

00 Holy Fire in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. 19.04.14

______________________________

In Jerusalem, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Holy Fire appeared yet again. Every year, delegations from Orthodox lands take the fire back to their homelands. Russia is no exception. HH will light his Easter Candle from the Holy Fire brought by plane from Jerusalem. It’s coming… ever the same and evergreen at once.

19 April 2014. Let’s Keep it FOCUSED… Easter Comes at Midnight Tonight Folks

00 Acoytes in Harrisburg PA USA. 19.04.14

______________________________

The above are two young acolytes at an OCA parish… let them remind you that tonight is the Feast of Feasts… the Day of All Days… the Very Centre of our Christian Faith. Easter is ALL that and MORE… don’t let any of the gnarly stuff interfere with that. It’ll still be there on Monday, sadly enough. However, first, there’s a matter of a FEAST…
