Χριστὸς Ανέστη! Christ is Risen!


Before continuing with further remarks (I believe I am finished with my exhortations for the day!), I would first make mention of Mother’s Day. There are those who feel that this holiday is somewhat artificial, an excuse for purveyors of cards and floral arrangements. But I disagree.

Our mothers – those yet living and those who have passed on – are the source and bedrock of all human experience. Without our mothers, there is no life whatsoever.
