PASCHAL MESSAGE TO THOSE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE PARISH FAMILY
OF HOLY TRINITY
IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST! … GLORY FOREVER!
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Holy Pascha, the Great and Holy ‘Feast of all Feasts’ is coming soon! As Christians there should be nothing more important in our lives than celebrating Christ’s Resurrection from the dead.
On Holy Pascha our faith is renewed along with that of the Myrrh-bearing Women standing by the open tomb; our hope is confirmed along with that of the Apostles on the road to Emmaus; and our love is strengthened along with that of the Mother of God who remained ever at the side of her Son.
Dear Brethren, Matushka Victoria and I love all of you so very much! Our prayer is that we use the remaining time of the “Great Fast” and ‘Holy Week’ wisely by purifying our souls and bodies … and when Pascha arrives may we be worthy to proclaim together that truly ‘CHRIST IS RISEN!’
With anticipation of our Risen Lord,
