SPYRIDON HELLENIC ORTHODOX CHURCH S. RIDGELAND AVE. PALOS HEIGHTS, IL WWW. SAINT- SPYRIDON.ORG Hymn of Note On the night of the Resurrection, shortly before midnight, all the lights of the church will be turned off. All but one of the vigil lamps will be blown out, and the church with all the faithful will be covered in darkness. Then, just before the light of the resurrection dawns to light the adorned paschal candles, the chanters will chant a hymn that fittingly speaks of the predawn darkness. This hymn is the 7 th eothinon hymn and our hymn of note for this month. Lo, darkness and early dawn. And why, Mary, are you standing by the grave, your mind full of darkness? Why do you seek where Jesus has been laid? But see the disciples running together, see how they have realised the Resurrection from the grave clothes and the napkin, and have remembered the Scripture concerning this. With whom and through whom we too have believed and sing your praise O Christ, the Giver of Life. In that early dawn of the resurrection, once the obligatory Sabbath rest had passed, Mary Magdalene rushed to the tomb of Christ. In the darkness of the predawn hours, she found the tomb empty. According to the gospel narrative, she went back to the disciples and told them that the body of Jesus was gone and that somehow it was moved. The apostles Wishing all of you a blessed Holy Week and a Glorious Pascha!

The beloved apostle John came to believe that Jesus had risen as soon as he got to the tomb. Peter, on the other hand, went into the tomb, and found the grave clothes and the napkin folded separately. The body was not stolen. Jesus had risen indeed. This detailed reference to the burial napkin is worth further explanation. It was a custom at that time that when sitting at dinner, one would crumble up their napkin and throw it away if they were done with their food. However, if one was just taking a break from eating, they would fold the napkin, signifying that they would return. Therefore, seeing the napkin folded separately, Peter knew not only that Jesus s body was not stolen - for who would bother to unwrap a dead body in an act of burglary under the watch of the Roman guard but that Jesus would return. Mary, however, seeing the empty tomb, she did not assume that Jesus had risen. She still believed that someone had moved the body. Her mind was still in darkness, much like the darkness that enveloped those predawn hours. She rushed to the tomb full of love for Christ, but her grief and the darkness of her mind did not allow her to conclude that the Lord had risen from the dead. All of us will come to the Resurrection service in a few weeks. Having prepared throughout Holy and Great Lent, with prayer, charity, fasting, and confession, having forgiven and having asked forgiveness, we will rush to receive the light amidst the darkness of the pre-resurrection dawn. I hope and pray that we will not stay in darkness but that we will receive the light not just on our Paschal candles, but deeper inside our hearts and minds. This light of the Resurrection, passed down from the disciples, with whom and through whom, we too have believed, will move us all to singing praises to Christ our God with every breath we take. Looking a bit ahead to the eight eothinon gospel, Mary Magdalene, who had a hard time believing in the resurrection, stayed by the empty tomb after Peter and John had left. She stayed and wept. By her staying, she then became the first to see the Risen Lord. I hope and pray, that on the night of the Resurrection, we will all stay, with tears of joy to see not just the empty tomb but to see the Risen Christ Himself. Amen. Fr. Tilemahos

4 CHOIR NEWS IT S NOT GOODBYE The St. Spyridon Choir has recently received the news that one of our most beloved songbirds will not be joining us anymore in the choir loft due to health reasons. Ida Trakadas, for over 60 years has been singing the Lord s praises not only with our own choir but choirs throughout our Metropolis and the USA. Ida was the tenth President of the Chicago Metropolis Federation of Church Music Choirs, and attributes her dedication in perpetuating church choirs to her teacher and mentor, Mr. George D. Dimopoulos, Protopsalti and Choir Director of the Sts. Constantine and Helen Church (Chicago/Palos Hills). Mr. Dimopoulos encouraged her and was instrumental in furthering her vocal training. She began her musical training at an early age in piano but soon discovered that her first love was singing. This led her to vocal training. Ida was a member and soloist with the Marshall Field Company Choral Society and performed at Orchestra Hall in Chicago, the Chicago Opera Company, Red Cross Entertainment Group, Hellenic Choral Society and other choral groups. She served as choir director at the St. Spyridon Church (Pullman-Roseland/Palos Heights) and as both interim and assistant choir director at the St. Nicholas Church in Oak Lawn, Illinois. Since its inception, Ida has served the Metropolis Choir Federation as committee worker, board member, secretary and vice-president as well as President. In 1982, with her beloved late husband, Kosta at her side, she organized the pilgrimage to the Holy Lands and Greece where members of our federation made history by singing the Divine Liturgy in the church of the Holy Sepulchre. She also played an active role in the formation of the National Forum of Church Musicians, where she served as publicity coordinator. Ida spent most of her working career as an administrator in the health care services. Currently Ida is enjoying retirement traveling and volunteering for various organizations at St. Spyridon. We wish Ida well and know she will still be humming in the pews with the choir. God Grant You Many Years!!! We thank you for your years of dedication. Love, Your fellow choir members and all the parishiones of St. Spyridon. 4 The Voice
5 PHILOPTOCHOS NEWS Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. (1 Cor. 13:7-8) In these words of St. Paul to the Corinthians we find the essence of the work of Philoptochos. As the ones who love the poor, the ladies of Philoptochos tend to everyone in need by giving them hope and faith that the love of God never fails. In turn, the faithful of our Church have always responded to the philanthropic ministries of Philoptochos through prayer and dedicated commitment. We thank you sincerely for responding to the appeal of the St. Spyridon Philoptochos on behalf of the Nika Alex family. Your act of kindness and generosity demonstrates an abundance of love and noble commitment to philanthropy. The difficult journey of Nika Alex and his family started more than three years ago when he was diagnosed with leukemia. After his bone-marrow transplant, the Philoptochos had extended a helping hand through the St. Spyridon chapter and the Metropolis of Chicago Philanthropy Fund. As the cancer reappeared three months ago and Nika s family was once again in need, we appealed to all the faithful to assist the Philoptochos in taking care of this family. The response has been wonderful and we thank you for your loving support. We kindly ask for your prayers that Nika will recover and will return to his wife and two sons in perfect health. On behalf of Nika s family, please accept our gratitude and our prayers that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ bless you and your family always.

As in the past years, we feature Greek-English liturgical works such as THE AKATHISTOS HYMN, HOLY WEEK PASCHA and more. For your Lenten meals, we carry a wide variety of Lenten cookbooks. For your prosfora needs, take a look at our high quality wood prosfora seals imported from Greece. Available in three sizes, these seals (sfrayides) were crafted with loving care and skill by monks from the monastery. The fine, exacting cut carved into these seals ensures a sharp, deep impression not obtained by plastic seals of lesser quality. For truly distinctive prosfora, consider purchasing one of our seals. And for your home, we have renewed our supply of incense (livani) and charcoal. Please check out our newly expanded line of 3x4 wood icons which include many of the better known Saints. These icons not only make fine gifts, they also are a means of introducing young people to the meditative windows that the Saints images represent and inspire. As always we appreciate your patronage and pray that the upcoming Holy Week will be spiritually fulfilling for you and your family. St. Spyridon Hellenic Orthodox Church 15
