My Beloved!

Already we are in the journey of Great Lent and during the Sundays of this journey, the church highlights the symbols and images of our Saints. Symbols, such as our holy icons and the Holy Cross, and saints, such as St. Gregory Palamas, St. John writer of the Ladder, St. Mary of Egypt. The reason for this is that church wants to inspire, strengthen and empower us more during this Journey of Great Lent. Using the spiritual tools of fasting, praying, alms giving and also participating more in the sacramental life of our church, we eagerly prepare ourselves for this journey with the final destination of Holy Week — to experience His passion, Crucifixion, death and Resurrection! May our God give strength from above, to you and your families
