CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED HE IS RISEN!

Pictured: The Resurrection / Anastasis (11th century mosaic), Hosios Loukas monastery, Church of the Katholikon (narthex), Distomo, Greece.
Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Bestowing life!

how to live the Great Fast in preparation for Christ's Pascha

It is almost time for the Great Fast (Lent) before Pascha (Easter)! I love this graphic that I've seen all over social media. I believe it was written by Fr Daniel Rogich..... so many awesome ideas to implement, and it is nice to have our readings for the season in one place. 

Eastern Hospitality: feasting & fasting with Father Deacon Moses & Mother Gabriella

Have you visited the great new website: Eastern Hospitality? Abouna Moses and Mother Gabriella give instruction on making delicacies, some that are fast-friendly. In the middle of each episode, there is a theological teaching. They have clearly worked hard on this project. Please like and share and learn more about Eastern Christian hospitality
They had a great episode on the Christian discipline of fasting- click here for this episode that might convince you that our fasting seasons are God's gift to us
Great work, Abouna and Mother!

The Nativity of Jesus Christ is almost here!

Every year, it is the same story- buying gifts, cooking special foods, caroling, crafting, and remembering the amazing gift that God has given us in blessing us with His Son, Jesus Christ. Ever the same, ever new....
