359- An Extra Feast Please?

 

A child once wrote a message to the Lord saying:

Dear God,

 Can you please put an extra feast between Christmas and Easter because there is nothing good that happens between them?

This is a childs heart crying in need of more spiritual joy in addition to that of Christmas and Easter.

The early church, as well as the modern Orthodox Church, managed to have a celebration every day of the year, be it a Lordly feast or in memory of a saints who have joyfully gone to Paradise.

Every Sunday we celebrate Jesus Resurrection. Every Friday we fast and remember his salvation-giving pains. There isnt a month that passes by without us remembering His birth and resurrection.

St-Takla.org Divider

My Lord:

You are my everlasting Feast!

Your Bible is my joyful gospel,

Your Births gospel fills my heart with peace.

Your birth offers me a new birth.

Your resurrection grants me a blessed life.

With you, my sufferings are turned to joy.

And my pilgrimage turned into a never-ending feast.

You are my feast and endless joy.

In the angels feasts I see you transfigured, O God of heavens.

In the feasts of prophets and apostles I see you the core of every prophecy and mission.

In martyrs feasts your glorious cross shines within me.

In the saints feasts I see you O Holiest of Holies the Saint of Saints.
