Wednesday before Easter

Our numbers were down a little bit more at today's service, but as Kathy noted here last evening it was a spot of peace in a busy day.

Today we began hearing The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to St. Luke, per the Gospels appointed for this week. There is a special power in hearing these accounts one after another, day by day, like this; I'm sure that was very deliberately done by the compiler(s) of the Lectionary.

Yet another treasure bound up in our 1928 Prayer Book, unknown I guess but to the clergy and someone who attends Mass every day in Holy Week.

    Our numbers were down too last night for the Orthros chanted by anticipation for today, Great and Holy Thursday and for the Holy Unction service. Usually we get 60 or so people. This year 25, but we also had a big snow storm...18 inches of snow and its just stopping now. A Blessed Pascha to your parish!

    kolokotronis, I am sorry to hear of your weather! I remember one Easter (?) morning a few years ago we had snow, but at our elevation at home it was only a light dusting soon gone. Further below it was just wet.

    A Blessed (and sunny and warm?) Easter to you and yours!
