3 Paschal Reflection 2015 of Metropolitan Methodios Tonight at this very moment we relive the decisive and ever present miracle of our faith. Presently, we will light our candles from the Paschal light which emanates from the life-giving tomb. It is the light of the Risen Christ The light which enlightens humanity and conquers the darkness of apathy, of disbelief, of sin, of death. Listen carefully to the powerful message of the angel which stunned Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James, and Solome. The three journeyed to the Tomb on the morning of the first day after the Sabbath. When they reached the Tomb, they discovered that the great stone was rolled away, and that the body of the Savior was no longer there. An angel dressed in a white robe said to them, Do not be amazed: you seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified. He has Risen, he is not here. (Mark 16) Ever since that morning, this joyous proclamation spans the centuries, and resounds in the hearts and souls of men and women in every corner of the Earth. The Son of God is not here He is Risen! He did not remain in the tomb because, as St. Basil teaches, it was not possible for Him, the author of life to be held by death. The Savior made his pilgrim way on earth among us. His journey brought Him to a cross and a tomb and to Hades. To quote St. Basil once again, He descended into Hades that He might fill all things with Himself and loosed the pangs of death. Rising on the third day, He prepared the way for the Resurrection of all from the dead (anaphora prayer liturgy of St. Basil) Tonight, we relive the Resurrection of the Savior which changed the course of human history. Tonight we celebrate Easter together with our brothers and sisters the martyrs of our time who refused to deny their faith, and endured insult and injury and, ultimately, death with dignity. We celebrate tonight with Christian brothers and sisters who are victims of homicidal acts of violence throughout the world. We celebrate tonight with the 21 Coptic Christians beheaded in Libya by Isis. We draw near the life-giving tomb of our Savior on our knees as did they to whisper a prayer for the countless innocent brethren devastated by war for the men and women for the children! being crucified and beheaded because they are Christians. We are horrified that people can kill in God s name, forgetting what Christ told his disciples The hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering a service to God. (John 16:2) We celebrate tonight, praying that the Risen Lord may forgive us for our lack of courage, for our indifference in the face of the barbaric slaughter of our Christian brethren in Kenya and in that part of the world where Christianity flourished until recently Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Syria and Afghanistan. The few remaining Christians in the Middle East will soon disappear, while we continue being Pontius Pilates who wash our hands in the praetorium of indifference. We come to the Tomb of the Savior to receive Light from the unwaning Light and to share it with the refugees and the displaced families who suffer unspeakable acts of violence and death. My brothers and sisters, no matter how intense the darkness that surrounds us, no matter how bleak the world is, no matter how overwhelming the problems we face, the light of the Risen Christ shines on all of us. The darkness of inhumanity, brutality, and barbarity is indeed oppressive, but it cannot overcome the light of compassion, sensitivity, and humanity that shines forth in the Risen Christ. The darkness of destruction rages in the world around us, but it cannot overshadow the light of peace which shines forth from the life-giving tomb. We believe that Jesus took upon Himself the suffering, the pain, the violence and the death of every human being and, in His resurrection, He has given us the sure hope of everlasting life. We believe in the Risen Lord that love has triumphed over hatred, goodness over evil, and life over death! May we all be enlightened by the radiance of the Resurrection. May we be inspired to build a future of tolerance, of truth and of love, where every human life is respected! Let us approach to receive light from the unwaning light and let us glorify Christ who is Risen from the Dead.
5 FROM FATHER ANTHONY Beloved in Christ, as we enter the month of May we continue to bask not just in the sunshine of spring, but also in the Light of the Holy Resurrection of our Lord. In the northern hemisphere, it is always a blessing to celebrate Pascha simultaneously with the renewal of all God s creation around us. The physical renewal of plant life in spring can only occur after the dark and bleak days of dormancy during winter, thus spring is focused on the renewal of life. In the same fashion, Orthodox Christians are spiritually renewed each year at Pascha as we celebrate eternal life a direct consequence of the Lord s Resurrection. During Holy Week we are surrounded by many venerable traditions, both during liturgical services and in the home. Many of our beloved traditions of Pascha both small t and big T are clear reminders and symbols of the message of Pascha. Let us look at this aspect of our paschal celebration a bit deeper. First of all, let us remember that in Orthodox liturgical theology, we never separate the events of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of our Lord. The Church has always considered the three day period from Holy Friday through the Sunday of Pascha, as one continuous liturgical commemoration. After all, without the Lord s death on the Cross there could be no Resurrection. When we attend the service of the passion of Christ on Holy Thursday evening, it is traditional for the faithful to hold lit candles from the end of the fifth gospel reading to the end of the service. If we meditate a bit on this tradition, we should be able to see how the candle represents us persons created in the image and likeness of God. In general, the candles we light in church remind us of the mystery of our being a union of body and soul represented by the candle and the flame. By being given light from the altar on Holy Thursday evening, we thereby receive the Light of Christ Himself, just as our bodies contain the Light of Christ given to us at baptism. As we hold our lit candles during the service, we should clearly comprehend that we are participants in the death of our Lord. Our goal each year at Pascha is to spiritually die with Christ in order to be risen with Him. Another venerable tradition upheld on Holy Friday, is that of passing under the Epitaphios as we re-enter the church after the procession. Through this gesture we demonstrate our humility as we bow our heads and necks in order to pass underneath. Humility is one of the fruits of our Lenten struggle, so therefore, we should come to church on Holy Friday in order to bury our egos. After the service, we are all given a flower to take home, again, as a reminder of our participation in the death and burial of Christ. We can also extend the symbolism of the flower both as a reminder of the negative things in our lives that should have died and been buried, as well as a promise of eternal life which pours out from the Tomb. When we come to the vigil liturgy of Pascha on Holy Saturday morning, we see the priest toss bay laurel leaves and rose petals used at the burial of Christ, just prior to the announcement of His Resurrection. The ancient Greeks used laurel leaves as a sign of triumph and victory, as seen by the use of laurel wreaths to crown victorious athletes. Christ s death and resurrection were His ultimate victory against the power of the Devil over mankind, thus we clearly pronounce this message through this venerable ritual and immediately after, through the holy word of God. This brings us to the main celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord commencing late Holy Saturday night. As we all know very well, the main symbol of the Resurrection is the lit candle which we hold throughout the Orthros and Liturgy of Pascha. We have already spoken above of the symbolism of the candle; however, in this case we clearly understand the flame as the Light of the Risen Christ. The Light comes from the sleepless vigil lamp constantly burning on the Holy Table, which represents both the Throne of God and the empty Tomb. The distribution and receipt of the Light of the Resurrection should also remind us of the annual miraculous appearance of the Holy Fire in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem (for more information on this miracle, do a google search for articles, as well as a YouTube search for many videos on the miracle). A secondary symbol of the Resurrection are the red paschal eggs, which are traditionally dyed on either Holy Thursday or Saturday (never on Holy Friday!), and blessed in church after the liturgy of Pascha. It is important for us to teach our children that these are blessed eggs that represent important theological teachings very different from the multi-colored Easter eggs used in eggs hunts that seem to have more of a connection to bunnies and springtime, than with the death and resurrection of our Lord. Now please do not misunderstand that there is any wrong with multi-colored eggs and egg hunts. We can incorporate such traditions in our celebration as long as we teach the importance and significance of the red eggs, which should be quite obvious. The red color of course represents the blood shed by our Lord in His passion and death on the Cross, while the egg itself represents both the tomb of Christ and new life. Along with red eggs being a tradition in our homes, there is also the sweet bread baked for the feast known as lambropsomo, which usually has a red egg baked into the loaf. With this tradition we don t just see a symbol of the death and resurrection of our Lord through the red egg, but also the emphasis on the sweetness of eternal life in the Kingdom granted through the Resurrection. Of course, the paschal celebration is never complete without the presence of roast lamb. Again, this is an obvious symbol of Pascha the new Passover of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who is the final and perfect sacrifice offered for the redemption of mankind. Beloved in Christ, hopefully with these in-depth descriptions and commentary on the various traditions of Holy Week and Pascha, you will come to appreciate them even more from year to year. We should always strive to continuously learn about our Orthodox faith, especially when we are raising children, so that they can learn early on how and why we do certain things in church and in the home. Many parishioners will comment on how their parents would always answer their questions about Church with, that s just how we do it. Hopefully we can take this up a notch by giving well-informed answers that make sense! Christ is Risen! +Fr. Anthony
6 FROM FATHER ANTHONY Spiritual Wisdom This is our festival that we celebrate God coming to man that man might go back to God our Father. Off with the old man, on with the new! Once dead in Adam, now alive in Christ, born with Christ, crucified with Christ, buried with Christ, risen with Christ! St. Gregory Nazianzus God s commandments are not grievous but a light burden. But they are light only where there is love if love is not present, everything is difficult. Therefore, preserve love, do not lose it, for though it is possible to recover love, this can only be at the cost of much weeping and praying, and without love, life on earth is hard. To continue in malice means death to the soul, from which may the Lord preserve us. St. John the Theologian On the third day, He freely rose again from the dead. He appeared to His disciples as He had been. However, He tarried for forty days so that they might be instructed by Him in the precepts of life and so that they might learn what they were to teach. Then, in a cloud spread around Him, He was lifted up into heaven so that as a conqueror, He might bring humanity to the Father. For Christ loved man, He became man, and He shielded man from death. St. Cyprian of Carthage We ridiculed our Lord and sentenced Him to death; in return, He takes revenge on us with His infinite love and forgiveness (from Fr. Anthony s spiritual father) In Appreciation I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all the assistance and extra effort, put forth by many of you during Great Lent and Holy Week. This includes all the volunteer readers, chanters, and the choir who assisted with the many services of the season; the parish ministries that sponsored the Lenten suppers; the ecclesiastical committee of the parish council; the altar boys; the palm cross weavers; the decorating committee which assisted throughout Holy Week; the Philoptochos paschal egg-dyeing crew; those who oversaw the two youth retreats, the myrrh-bearers, and the egg hunt on Pascha; and all the other behind-the-scenes volunteers who helped with many other odds and ends. As I say every year, the various tasks and obligations of this beautiful liturgical season cannot be fulfilled adequately, without the help of all of the above-mentioned brothers and sisters in Christ. A special thank you also needs to be offered to the Nenopoulos, Passias (Steve), and Tsitsopoulos families for undertaking a huge task. The Metropolis approached our parish with less than a week s notice to host the annual basketball awards banquet on Sunday, 3/29. Two of these families were already involved earlier that day with the Greek Independence Day program of our Greek School. The three families assisted with all aspects of this banquet which totaled 350+ guests, thus ensuring that it would be a pleasant experience for all. Of course, as everyone knows, Steve Passias also oversees the entire basketball ministry of our parish. May our Risen Lord bless all of those mentioned and not mentioned, for these labors of love! (The following is taken from The Y ear of Grace of the Lord, by a Monk of the Eastern Church, St. Vladimir s Seminary Press, 1992) The Time of Easter The liturgical season which is called the time of Easter begins on Holy Saturday and ends on the eve of Pentecost. There are forty days between the Sunday of Easter and the Thursday of the Ascension, fifty between Easter and the Sunday of Pentecost, and six Sundays in this period of fifty days, not including the Sunday of Easter. The time of Easter contains several special features of ritual. The chief one is that at the beginning and end of each liturgy, the troparion of the Resurrection Christ is risen from the dead is sung. During the week that follows Easter, the doors of the iconostasion remain constantly open: in this way we symbolize the free access to the Holy of Holies that Jesus Christ, our great high priest, opened to us with His blood. The epitaphion remains on the altar, so that the liturgies are celebrated on the image of the life-giving tomb of the Saviour. One must neither fast nor prostrate oneself during the week of Easter. Friday of this week is specially dedicated to the Holy Virgin under the title of the Fountain of the Mother of God, in allusion to a tradition in Constantinople. Easter week, in Greek, has a very beautiful name: The week of Renewal, which in fact suits the whole of the paschal time. Jesus wished to die and to rise again at the threshold of spring. In the same way that Christmas coincides with the victory of sunlight over darkness, when the days begin to lengthen, so Easter coincides with the renewal of nature Springtime speaks to us if we know how to interpret God s creation of inner renewal. There is a springtime of the soul. Easter, like springtime in nature, brings us a message of hope. The Resurrection of Jesus tells us that we can be changed. We need to feel the new green of the paschal season, to which some sayings in Holy Scripture apply very well Memorial Day Cemetery Schedule On Memorial Day, Monday, May 25 th, Fr. Anthony will be at the following cemeteries: Melrose 10:00 am Evergreen, Stoughton 10:45 am Knollwood, Canton 11:30 am Please be ready to hand Father Anthony your list of names removed from the envelope.

Truly He is Risen! On Pascha we celebrate the moment when good conquered evil and life triumphed over death. Just as Spring brings warmth and bright colors to the earth after a harsh Winter, Pascha brings joy and new life to the spirit, offering us the hope of renewal and a time to recommit ourselves to our Faith, our Holy Church, our families and friends, and, of course, to those in need. For Koliva please call the church office at We would appreciate one weeks notice in advance of the memorial service to prepare your koliva. The cost is $85 and checks should be made payable to the Ladies Philoptochos Society. Don't forget to join or renew your membership for 2015! Anyone who would like a visit from the Ladies of Philoptochos, or knows of someone who would like some company, please contact the office. As faithful stewards of Philoptochos, we have a daily opportunity, indeed an obligation, to follow the selfless example of Christ s love, to share the light by helping those in need. Some of you may have heard about the Butterfly Effect, a physics concept, which suggests that a single butterfly flapping its wings on one side of the globe can, in theory, cause a significant weather event on the other side of the world. What if a simple act of kindness, a very small change not unlike the movement of a butterfly s wings, could also result in significant consequences? We in Philoptochos can be that small change. Unknown good and great things can flow from every kindness we show without our knowledge or design. There are things we can do right now to start the change. Today, 50 million Americans struggle with hunger. Even more disturbing is that one in five children in our country, the richest in the world, goes to bed hungry. Philoptochos chapters across the country have recently been challenged to serve 250,000 meals to those in need by Summer Imagine that each person we help then helps another and another and another. We could be the start of a network of unanticipated kindness, a renewed goodness in our lives. The possibilities are extraordinary and boundless. On behalf of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society and the people we help, I thank you for your devoted service to Christ and His Church. With love in the Resurrected Christ, Maria Logus National Philoptochos President
