We had a lovely early Liturgy this morning for Sts. Constantine and Helen. It was quiet and peaceful and just very nice. There were just two others besides our family there. When I looked up during communion I realized our children had lined up in age order (boys first because they were serving). One of those moments when you wish you had a camera. I tried to imprint it on my memory instead.
Joyous feastday to all celebrating their name days today! (Many years to our oldest!)
for Sts. Constantine & Helen, in Tone 3 –
this day Saint Constantine
revealed the Cross, the Wood
Jews, it is dishonor;
vanquishing their opponents.
