It is hard to believe that the Holy Season of Great Lent is nearly complete and Holy Week and Pascha are just around the corner. What a drastic transformation has taken place in our natural environment during these weeks of the Holy Fast! When we began, there were several feet of snow on the ground with even more falling on the Sunday of Orthodoxy as we prepared to celebrate Vespers at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church. And now, as I sit in front of the computer writing this message, the snow is gone and I see the crocuses and daffodil shoots coming out of the ground! Hopefully, we can truthfully say the same is true in our spiritual lives

Brothers and Sisters, Isn’t it interesting that the Church uses the adjective “Great” when it refers to the fasting season in preparation for the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord? As we know this season is referred to as either Great Lent or the Great Fast. From a human standpoint, we might legitimately ask what is so great about Lent? After all it is a time of deprivation and negative. What is so great about giving up some of the things we love so much: meat, dairy, sweets, and other pleasures and entertainments? What is so great about having to fit our busy weekday schedules attendance at the Wednesday and Friday Presanctified Liturgy and Paraklis Services?

Having just completed a more than five hundred 500 mile journey around the parish blessing homes this past weekend, I was amazed to discover that for the first time in 21 years as a priest, that I forgot last Sunday was the unofficial start of the Pre-Lenten Season. Concentrating as I was on extending the blessing of the Jordan to your homes and spreading the joy of the Theophany Feast, Last Sunday I neglected to read the Gospel Reading of Zacchaeus, in addition to the appointed readings for the Sunday after Theophany.
