Christ is risen!
Just a few pics from Holy Week. The services, and hymns, and smells are all so beautiful - it seems impossible to capture. Yet looking at the few photos I snagged last week warms my heart.
|Before the Taking Down from the Cross at Vespers, the tomb decorated. This brief services was one of my favorites. I loved seeing them wrap Christ in linen and carry the epitaphios to the tomb we helped to decorate.|
|The girls love to collect rose petals and bay leaves on Holy Saturday. Such joy!|
|And Paschal Matins! The solea covered in beautiful baskets, the clergy taking turns censing the church, proclaiming "Christ is risen!" in many languages.|
Indeed he is risen!
