Father’s Message – March 2019

Dear Parishioners,

With the help of our Lord who loves us, we have already entered upon this year’s devotional season of the Triodion, and on March 11th, we will commence Holy and great Lent.

Herein is the spiritual wealth of our Orthodox Church made manifest, as well as her ever-vigilant care for the salvation of her children.

In order to assist us to follow from the start the right path of spiritual askesis, she offers the period of the Triodion.

There is more to Lent than fasting, and there is more to fasting than food. This principle lies at the heart of the Lenten Triodion, the main hymnbook of Orthodox Lent. For the Orthodox Church, Lent is without doubt the richest and most distinctive season of the ecclesiastical year. The lenten services, the spiritual lessons of the Triodion, and the biblical readings for the season invite us to simplify our lives and to immerse ourselves in the “bright sadness” of repentance.

Orthodox Lent begins on Clean Monday, March 11th, seven weeks before Pascha, when Orthodox Christians celebrate the Lord’s Resurrection.
