Dear brothers and sisters,
I would like to present a new series - "Looking Ahead to Next Sunday." The idea behind it is to introduce you to the readings and celebrations of the upcoming Sunday. Every Monday I will write about the Gospel lesson, on Wednesday - Epistle reading, and on Friday - the saint of the day. I will not give a full scale commentary on each, but rather offer an introduction, to give you a taste of what is to come on Sunday, in order to prepare you for a better participation during the Divine Liturgy.
Since our parish is on the Julian calendar, also known as the Old calendar, our liturgical lectionary and saints of the day, for most Sundays, will be different from those who follow the Gregorian, or New, calendar.
Eventually, I hope to start posting both an article and a podcast (audio) for each introduction. Stay tuned!
Yours in Christ,
April 7 - Annunciation, Saint John of the Ladder, Saint Tikhon, Patriarch of Moscow and Enlightener of North America
