It is hard to believe that the Lenten Season has come to a close and that we have now embarked on the final leg of our journey to Pascha, that of Passion (Holy) Week!
It has been quite a journey! With all of the joys and struggles, that one normallyencounters during the Fast, we also dealt with two nor’easters in a row which forced us to reschedule our Presanctified Liturgy and cancel our adult education.
None the less, I have been pleased by the peaceful spirit which has permeated our parish life during Great Lent. I have seen in the calm demeanor of so many of you the fruits of the three pillars of Lent at work in your lives, that of Prayer, Fasting and Good Works
We are now two weeks into the Great Fast! We have begun to stretch our spiritual muscles and hopefully we are starting to reap the benefits of this joyful season.
To someone outside the household of the faith, it seems incomprehensible that we could describe this time of increased spiritual effort and fasting as being joyful. Only one who walks the walk of the Lenten Disciplines of the Church can possibly understand this miraculous reality, that in our deprivation of food and earthly pleasures, we are filled with spiritual riches that warms our heart and nourishes our soul.
