Happy Easter, Part I

A joyous Easter to my brethren and sistern who celebrate the feast today, on March 27.

For us Orthodox, however, this is only the Second Sunday of Lent, on which we celebrate the memory of St. Gregory Palamas. Easter, for us, falls this year on May 1 -- five weeks away.

For more information on how the Church calendar works, check out this article on Dating Pascha in the Orthodox Church by Dr. Lewis J. Patsavos, Professor of Canon Law at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, or this article on The Date of Pascha by Fr. Nabil Hanna. You can also read Dr. Patsavos's article on The Calendar of the Orthodox Church, which is broader in scope.

Catholic and Protestant friends, party on!

Orthodox friends, back to the mujadara...
