Archpastoral Letter For Pascha 2014

Saturday, April 19, 2014

On this great and glorious feast of Pascha—the Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, our hearts are filled with tremendous joy, our souls are transformed and we bask in the Light of Truth. I wish to share with you the inspiring, uplifting and brilliant homily of our Father among the Saints, Athanasius the Great. Brethren, how fine a thing it is to move from festival to festival, from prayer to prayer, from holy day to holy day.

We feed as on the food of life, we constantly refresh our souls with His precious blood, as from a fountain. Read more...
