The daily reading, posted by Holy Resurrection Monastery
Christ is Risen…..Indeed, He is Risen!
A blessed Pascha to one and all! May the grace of our Lord and Savior be with you and your families, and may His mercy bring you enduring peace and salvation!
Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the praetorium, and they gathered the whole battalion before him. And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe upon him, and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they spat upon him, and took the reed and struck him on the head. And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him.
(Matthew 27:27-31 RSE)
Excuse me if I have already posted this, and likewise forgive me if it has somehow slipped my attention to do so…. I wanted to let interested folk know that Holy Resurrection Monastery (in Saint Nazianz, Wisconsin) posts video feeds from their daily services on Facebook Live! Surely, there is no substitute for attending any service or Divine Liturgy in person, but it does provide a wonderful avenue of at least a virtual participation for those who may not otherwise have access to such throughout the day. Click on the link below to visit the monastery’s Facebook page and to learn more / connect (as provided by a feature of Facebook Live, you can elect to be conveniently notified when the monastery is broadcasting)…
Let them, therefore, with fasting and with prayer make their adjurations, and not with the elegant and well-arranged and fitly-ordered words of learning, but as men who have received the gift of healing from God, confidently, to the glory of God. By your fastings and prayers and perpetual watching, together with your other good works, mortify the works of the flesh by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I’ve finally have gotten the chance to begin updating the Directory of Churches for the site, and will be making further updates in the weeks ahead.
A list of churches in California (along with two in Georgia) have been added to the Directory.
As always, f you have a church you would like listed, please let me know- leave a comment or get in touch at our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/byzantineca/
When I had originally set up the site, I enabled share buttons for the posts… what I originally hadn’t realized was that the reader had to click on the title to open the post (outside of the home page) and would only then see the sharing options. Most folks had not realized this- and who would have thought to do such a thing? In any case, I have corrected that, and enabled share options without having to jump through hoops to get to them. My apologies for the previous, unintended difficulty that the former layout may have presented!
