HAPPY EASTER!

My heartfelt Easter greetings to all my friends and readers, Orthodox and non-Orthodox, Christian and non-Christian, believer or non-believer. I greet and salute you all.

CHRISTOS VOSKRESE!

CHRIST IS RISEN!

VOISTINNU VOSKRESE!

INDEED, HE IS RISEN!

May God bless.

Bog blagoslovit.

Eve of the Holy Easter

Making Easter Eggs…

The title says it all, does it not?

But, before we celebrate… a pause for reflection at the tomb

This is the plashchenitsa, a full-size icon of Our Lord Christ laid out in the tomb. This photo is from my good friend, Sasha Ressetar. Standing for the Truth is never easy…

Easter is on its Way… and I DON’T mean Peter Cottontail!

Take a look at this absolutely gorgeous and yummy Paskha sweet cheese dessert made by Sasha’s mum, Matushka Theodora. I think that I gained a dress size just thinking of this! Lucky Sasha! Lucky Fr Daniel! Drat! There is no way to e-mail the taste of this… the limits of technology, I guess. Don’t you wish that you had a real Russian baba like Matushka Theodora to make this for you? Don’t you wish everybody did?

Easter IS on its way…
