Last week was physically taxing and mentally exhausting, to be sure. Battling a cold and losing my voice half way through Holy Week was an unexpected disappointment, but I want to thank all of you for your prayers and multiple offerings of home remedies and elixirs. Together, we pulled through and celebrated our Risen Lord with joy and a proclaimed His Resurrection to the world. Enjoy these days. Revel in His Victory. Receive His Light. Proclaim the Good News. Participate in His Life. Death is now annihilated and the Gates of the Kingdom are again thrown open. 


Xristos Anesti!
Alithos Anesti!
