your caitlyncosm fix for the week...

I know, I really suck at the blogging, but I'm a student!

Lent began in the Orthodox church. I've been at church almost every night for the past two weeks. Great Lent is a time of preparation for Pascha in the Orthodox Church. In addition to other things we step up the church attendance by having many many more services than usual, I've been a very busy gal.

As many of you know, Orthodox Easter usually falls on a different date than Western Easter (i.e. Catholic/Protestant Easter.) As a result Pascha won't be happening for another month, today was just a regular Sunday for us (a regular Lenten Sunday that is.) I will be chrismated on Holy Saturday, I'll officially be Orthodox, so this time of preparation is especially significant. I really want to write more about Lent right now, but I have to go. I just wanted to let you know I'm still alive and the reason why I haven't written lately.

Happy Western Easter to all my Catholic and Protestant friends!

Hi, Caitlyn. I just scrolled down to your Feb 20 post and copied the recipe for Black Bean and Corn Soup. Looks great! I'm excited about your Chrismation on Holy Saturday. Can't wait to celebrate with you at the Paschal Feast that night/early Sunday morning! Keep bloggin:-)
