I fondly remember the first time I was able to participate in decorating the Tomb.
I also have a special memory of using the Pascha flowers one year for Birth-Visualization and even though my daughter is about to turn three, I still think of those lilies.
Three weeks to go! I thank God for a helpful Lenten Retreat this past weekend on "The Hymns of Repentance."
Open to me the gates of repentance, O Giver of Life; for my spirit goes early to the temple of Thy Holiness, coming in the temple of my body, wholly polluted. But because Thou are compassionate, purify Thou me by the compassion of Thy mercies.
