Being now in the Great Lenten season in the Orthodox Church, all the faithful know and those who know certain things about the Orthodox Church would know that during this time of year on the Sundays, as well as on Great and Holy Thursday, the commemoration of the Last Supper, the Mystical Supper of Christ with his disciples, and Great and Holy Saturday, which is actually the vesperal vigil for the Feast of Pascha, the Resurrection of Christ, we would know that the Orthodox Church celebrates the Liturgy of St. Basil the Great.

Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever! This is Dn. Mark for A Christian Ending. Christ is risen from the dead, trampling death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life. This is the good news. This is the Gospel message. Sin and death are defeated and no longer have any hold on us. Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever!

If this is so, and we believe this, why then do you suppose that we still fear death so much? This series of podcasts, A Christian Ending, is about recovering and restoring a truly Christian perspective on death and dying and the ancient traditions of the preparation of the dead for burial in…

The very center of Great Lent, the forty days of Great Lent, the central week has to do with the veneration of the Cross. Now, we know that during Lent, the lenten season begins on the evening of Forgiveness Sunday, and then the first week of Great Lent is a very heavy liturgical week, where the Canon of St. Andrew is read at the Great Compline in the evening, and you have the two Liturgies of the Presanctified Gifts on Wednesday and Friday, then you have St. Theodore Saturday. Then the first Sunday of Great Lent is the Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy, which celebrates the victory over iconoclasm and the restoration of the holy icons into…

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

During March of every year, we Orthodox Christians devote two days in a more specific way to the doctrine of the Incarnation. We throw that word around. All I knew when I was a boy about the Incarnation: it sounded something like Carnation milk. [Laughter] That’s really all I knew. I did not know at that times that it comes from the word “caro” which means “flesh”: the enfleshing of God.

Those of us who grew up with that idea of the enfleshing of God, the Incarnation, rather tend to take it for granted. Sometimes I think…

I recently had my birthday, and a friend of mine gave me as a gift two volumes, two books, of the missionary letters of St. Nikolai Velimirović. St. Nikolai Velimirović was a wonderful saint of our time. He died only in the 1950s; actually, he died here in America at St. Tikhon’s Seminary in South Canaan, PA, 1956. He was from Serbia. He was an intellectual. He had earned doctors’ degrees in European universities. He had difficulties with his church institution, but then he became a bishop. [He] was a bishop in Žiča, a bishop in Ohrid. He suffered under Nazis; he suffered under Communists. He was in Dachau prison camp. He went…
