Easter Homily



"Come you all: enter into the joy of your Lord. You the first and you the last, receive alike your reward; you rich and you poor, dance together; you sober and you weaklings, celebrate the day; you who have kept the fast and you who have not, rejoice today. The table is richly loaded: enjoy its royal banquet. The calf is a fatted one: let no one go away hungry. All of you enjoy the banquet of faith; all of you receive the riches of his goodness. Let no one grieve over his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed; let no one weep over his sins, for pardon has shone from the grave; let no one fear death, for the death of our Saviour has set us free."       

~ St. John Chrysostom

Laur, have you read the entire homily? It is fabulous. You can find it here:

Miss you,

Elizabeth, one of these years I long to be a part of the whole Holy Week liturgy at our local Russian church. Maybe next year, Lord willing. Blessed Holy Week to you.

Isn't it a delight to know the life of a Christian is one of joy and feasting and abundance and peace, not judgement and denial and stinginess and shame?

Anita, I sure wish I had learned that earlier in my Christian life (esp. earlier in my Christian PARENTING life.)

Joy! Feasting! Abundance! Peace! Now that is worth talking about.
