Holy Saturday: Liturgy

The little girls were intrigued by the font set up for a baptism.

She couldn’t reach the water, thank heavens.

Reading the 15 Old Testament readings.

The few minutes of calm.

Reader Mark and one of his daughters

Liturgy was, from my point of view, rough. Moppet was reasonably well-behaved but Mittens had reached her limit. I spent the majority of it outside or in the narthex. It’s hard to be so little and at church every day for eight (nine today) days in a row. 

Since we’ve had a respiratory virus visiting I had left the two sickest children home to recuperate. I was hoping they would be able to go to Pascha that night. Ribby was sick but not dreadfully so she wanted to go to Liturgy. 

I did manage to do two Old Testament readings early on before things started to fall apart. In the end, I had Ribby take Moppet to communion while I stood in the narthex with a crying Mittens. Immediately afterward I packed those three up and drove them home. 

I myself turned around and drove back to church for a baptism (post later).
