Ok, this is the last church photo for a while, I promise. Second day of Easter (Pascha), and I went to a morning liturgy which is very joyous in mood. Just as the period preceding Easter, Great Lent, is 40 days, not including Holy Week, the week before Easter, so is the Paschal period 40 days. Going to the services prolongs the joyous mood of the feast before one lapses back into the mundane, not to mention overeating. Must say, it's great to cook with meat again. The house is full of delicious aromas!
