The Meaning of Holy Week

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Having fulfilled Forty Days... we ask to see the Holy Week of Thy Passion." With these words sung at Vespers of Friday, Lent comes to its end and we enter into the annual commemoration of Christ's suffering, death and Resurrection. It begins on the Saturday of Lazarus. The double feast of Lazarus' resurrection and the Entrance of the Lord to Jerusalem (Palm Sunday) is described in liturgical texts as the "beginning of the Cross" and is to be understood therefore, within the context of the Holy Week. The common Troparion of these days explicitly affirms that by raising Lazarus from the dead Christ confirmed the truth of general resurrection. It is highly significant that we are led into the darkness of the Cross by one of the twelve major feasts of the Church. Light and joy shine not only at the end of Holy Week but also at its beginning. All those familiar with Orthodox worship know the peculiar, almost paradoxical character of Lazarus Saturday services.

STEWARDSHIP



On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 91: We Cannot Forgive Enough

Sunday, April 24, 2016

“Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?”(Matthew 18:21 RSV)

Our society is filled with numbers and statistics. Everything has a price, for example. Newspapers are filled with ads that reveal costs as well as pages of “economic” data that are in reality, just numbers. The sports pages are crammed with box scores and player statistics. Professional sports teams are now relying heavily on what they call “analytics” defined as, the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in data, that is, in the statistics and numbers.

In an interesting exchange between the Apostle Peter and Our Lord in Matthew 18, numbers play an important part. Read more...
