Today is Great & Holy Thursday and tonight we will go to church to hear the 12 Passion Gospel readings during the matins service. It is so incredibly beautiful. there is a tradition of carrying your candles you held lit during the service, home with you and marking your doorways with a cross. It represents the passover, which is what Christ celebrated with his disciples on this day 2000+ years ago.
This coming Sunday is April 8th. It is Holy Pascha in the Orthodox Church! Nothing trumps Pascha…nothing. So in honor of the date, April 8th, I’d like to post a TBT photo. It will be our 24th wedding anniversary. Here is a picture from 24 years ago!
