Please Pray for Syrian Orthodox church, and its folks.. Orthodox Christians in Syria, along with brethren the world over, celebrate Easter tomorrow but, due to the conflict gripping that country, most will attend an evening service rather than the traditional midnight Mass and some will not be able to go to church at all. Christian concerns were heightened by the kidnapping of Aleppo’s Syrian Orthodox bishop, Yohanna Ibrahim, and Greek Orthodox bishop, Boulos Yaziji, late last month while they were on a mission to negotiate the release of two priests abducted earlier. Radical Chechen fighters have been blamed. The bishops are still being held.

Egyptian traditional meal:The first century Greek historian Plutarch wrote that the ancient Egyptians would honour their deities with offerings of salted fish, lettuce and onions on the feast of Shamo during the spring harvest season. Shamo means ‘renewal of life’, and some rituals associated with it, such as the colouring of eggs, have become attached to the celebration of Easter. During the Coptic era Shamo became Sham, which means ‘smelling’ in Arabic—and the spring festival of Sham El-Nessim (‘smelling the breezes’) is the modern version of this 4500 year old tradition.

Patriarch Yazigi Calls for Dialogue and Coexistence for Syria to Overcome Crisis May 06, 2013 DAMASCUS, (SANA)_Patriarch John X Yazigi of Antioch and All the East for Greek Orthodox Church emphasized the principles of dialogue, coexistence and respect for Syria to overcome its ordeal. During a religious mass at the Mariamite Cathedral of Damascus on the occasion of Easter, Yazigi hoped that Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo and Iskenderun, Bishop Paul Yazigi and Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo, Bishop John Ibrahim, who were kidnapped by an armed terrorist group, would return soon and that peace would prevail in Syria. ''We are hopeful that Syria will get over this ordeal and that old peaceful days will be restored, for its people to be messengers of love and peace that dispel hatred and injustice,'' Patriarch Yazigi said. ''Today, we share with Aleppo's parish their tragedy, but this should spur us on for more steadfastness and be an opportunity for us to declare our faith in Resurrection,'' he ...

Max Goniadis GREEK ORTHODOX EASTER Greek Orthodox Easter is celebrated tomorrow throughout the Orthodox world. Byzantine iconography depicts not the Resurrection of Christ but rather the Descend to the Underworld, Jesus liberating Adam and Eve, dragging them out of their graves. This is the message of the resurrection, a message of life after death. Descend to the Underworld, 13th century Byzantine fresco, Chora Monastery, Constantinople, today Kariye Müzesi, Istanbul, Turkey.

Forget "Fat Tuesday" but enjoy "Burnt Thursday" "Burnt Thursday" or Tsiknopempti is celebrated eleven days before the start of Lent. The "Burnt" part refers to the grilling of meats, a big part of the celebration of this day. The weekend following "Burnt Thursday" will also have parties and other events; technically, that Sunday is the last allowable day for eating meat and is sometimes called "Meat-eating Sunday". The best Greek restaurants will be crowded on this day - but seafood places are a safe bet to have tables available! In Greece, Carnival dates are tied to Greek Orthodox Easter, which is usually different from Western Easter. Every few years, both calendars will coincide, so do check if you want to attend both.

This is followed by Clean Monday or "Ash Monday", a generally family-oriented day where, in Athens, picni ...
Kalo Mina! "On March 1st, it is customary for mothers to braid bracelets for their children. These bracelets are called ‘Martis’. They are made of red and white string and are tied onto the wrists of the children. The superstition is that the children wear these bracelets so that the sun of early spring doesn’t burn their cheeks. The bracelet is red and white, symbolic of rosy cheeks yet a white complexion. The bracelets are worn until the Midnight Mass of the Greek Orthodox Easter. When the traditional bonfires are lit, the bracelets are removed and thrown into the fires."

Greek Orthodox Easter 05th MAY 2013 Easter in Corfu Easter in Corfu is unique. It has a mixture of East and West and of ecclesiastical, civic and military pomp which gives it a strongly individual flavour. The splendour of the occasion is increased by the fact that Easter in the Orthodox countries often falls later than in the West and the brilliant sunshine and the new green of the trees give the ceremonies a natural framework of great beauty. To this Spring scene are added the handsome Venetian and Georgian buildings of the town. For Corfu was occupied by the Venetians for 400 years and under British Protectorate for 50 years when it was the capital of the small Ionian state.
I've always loved Christmas mass, my first husband was Greek and love Greek Orthodox Easter services

Today was a great day. Was with family , went to my grandsons home and his wife and her family, and celebrated their Greek Orthodox Easter Sunday. Had Lamb cooked on the spit. Yummy. Had so many Greek dishes that went with it. Yummy desserts. Good company, daughter and family was there.And I must not forget our two beautiful great grand daughters. We all had fun. All have a great week.
Today, 15 April, the Christian Orthodox church celebrates Easter If anyone greets you with "Christ is risen" don't embarrass yourself and answer "you too" or "oh yeahh" or "isn't that cool." The proper response is "He is risen indeed." Last Sunday our steps were blessed to walk the streets where Paul Revere once walked -- Boston. We stayed at Hampton Inn, in Braintree. We had a lot of fun looking for the trees that look like brains or for the brains that hang from the trees. We found none! The hotel provided a shuttle that would take us to Quincy Adams station. Turns out the shuttle driver had the privilege to celebrate two Easters: the Catholic Easter because he was Catholic and the Greek Orthodox Easter because his wife was of the Greek Orthodox persuasion. I could only imagine the theological gymnastics required to make such a marriage work traditionally speaking. The driver soon confessed that he is not actually practicing his faith. And there were some other theological points made in the discussion ...
