 THE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT … AMEN!

CHRIST IS RISEN!  …  INDEED HE IS RISEN!

My Spiritual Children,

The celebration of the Feast of all Feasts, Holy Pascha, continues through the month of May.  We greet each other by proclaiming the Truth that Christ, the Son of God, is Risen from the dead! … and by Jesus’ death on the cross He has destroyed death and given us a resurrected eternal life.

To keep prevalent in our minds and in our hearts this great joy we are called to do the following:

  • Say ‘Christ Is Risen’, when we initially greet each other. We use this greeting until the Feast of Holy Ascension.
  • We DO NOT Kneel or do prostrations for prayer or worship, privately or publicly. We STAND instead. Kneeling is a penitential posture while standing is a celebrative posture. We go back to kneeling at Holy Pentecost.
  • We do NOT use the Prayer to the Holy Spirit, “O Heavenly King’, until the Feast of Holy Pentecost, for this is when he Apostles received the Holy Spirit as Tongues of Fire.

Dear Brethren, let us carry on the traditions of the Church so that we may live an Orthodox Way of Life, a life pleasing to God, all in order to be truly human.

 

With love in the Risen Christ,

Fr. Lev
