Standing.jpg

With the celebration of Easter - the Feast of Feasts - we began the 40-day Easter cycle. During this time, all the faithful should stand instead of kneeling during the Divine Liturgy. If you study the icon of the Resurrection of our Savior, you will notice that our Lord is RAISING Adam and Eve to their feet. They and we now stand in the glory of the Resurrected Savior. Kneeling, furthermore, is a sign of penance. Since all signs of penance are removed from the Liturgy during the Easter season, we should likewise refrain from kneeling.

A MESSAGE FROM FR. IHOR

Today we celebrate the joyful feast of Easter. We remember the new life Jesus has won for us by His suffering, death, and resurrection. This is the great feast of the Church because by His resurrectiuon, Jesus assures us that we too will rise from the dead. By His death, He has conquered sin and death forever, and what we have to do is believe in Him. We acclaim Jesus as our Lord and Savior and so we are indeed, saved by Him. If we believe in Him and what He has done for us, our lives must constantly be changing to be more and more like His. By living lives of real faith, we show Jesus that we truly believe in Him. As we celebrate Easter year after year, we must also grow in our faith in God and our love for Him and for one another. Our faith enables us to love another just as He has loved us. On Easter Sunday, pray for those who struggle to believe. Many people live in doubt and fear. They are faced with uncertainty. They find it hard to believe. They search for God. Say a prayer for them, so that someday they will sing with us on Easter Sunday, knowing God's presence and love in their life. May this truly be a "holy" week for you and your family. Let us keep each other in our prayers!

Father Ihor & Family
