3 PASTORAL MESSAGE Dear Parishioners, In anticipation of the Great and Holy Feast of Pascha, I greet you in our Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! In just a few short weeks, we will be chanting, no, proclaiming Christ is Risen! For some, the long battle of fasting during Great Lent becomes the joy of feasting. For some, the period of preparation through confession and askesis is completed in the receiving of Holy Communion. For others, the trip to the Church for the Anastasis Service is one of habit they come and receive the light and leave immediately. Into which category do you fall? For half of the Orthodox faithful, it is a trip of habit. Christ entered Hades so that we wouldn t have to thus with His death He defeated death!!! Christ give us eschatological peace through His Glorious 3rd day Resurrection!!! - Let this reality ring within your heart! - Let Christ s love overwhelm you! - Let His Resurrection be for you a source of eternal peace! Believe it! Really Believe it! And Proclaim it!!! Praying that you have a Blessed Lent, I remain, In His Service, Rev. Father Jon Boukis Proistamenos

8 PALM SUNDAY On Sunday, five days before the Passover of the Law, the Lord came from Bethany to Jerusalem. Sending two of His disciples to bring Him a foal of an ass, He sat thereon and entered into the city. When the multitude there heard that Jesus was coming, they straightway took up the branches of palm trees in their hands, and went forth to meet Him. Others spread their garments on the ground, and yet others cut branches from the trees and strewed them in the way that Jesus was to pass; and all of them together, especially the children, went before and after Him, crying out: "Hosanna: Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord, the King of Israel" (John 12:13). This is the radiant and glorious festival of our Lord's entry into Jerusalem that we celebrate today. The branches of the palm trees symbolize Christ's victory over the devil and death. The word Hosanna means "Save, I pray," or "Save, now." The foal of an ass, and Jesus' sitting thereon, and the fact that this animal was untamed and considered unclean according to the Law, signified the former uncleanness and wildness of the nations, and their subjection thereafter to the holy Law of the Gospel. DONATIONS Donations were made by Brian Moffatt, Marcus and Paraskevi Barbara Georgiadis Couch, and Paul and Pauline Cuzmano in Memory of Evangeline Georgiadis Moffatt. May Her Memory Be Eternal!!! Bob and Bessie Lemen offered a donation for the Health of their daughter, Evgenia McLaughlin. Let us offer our prayers for her restored good health. MAY GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!!! SACRAMENTS The Handmaiden of God, Evangeline Moffatt, was given an Orthodox Funeral and Burial by Father Jon at the Greek Orthodox Parish of St. Demetrios in Waterloo, Iowa, on February 23, MAY HER MEMORY BE ETERNAL
9 SATURDAY OF LAZARUS Celebrated March 27 Lazarus and his sisters Martha and Mary, the friends of the Lord Jesus, had given Him hospitality and served Him many times (Luke 10:38-4z; John 12:2-3). They were from Bethany, a village of Judea. This village is situated in the eastern parts by the foothills of the Mount of Olives, about two Roman miles from Jerusalem. When Lazarus - whose name is a Hellenized form of "Eleazar," which means "God has helped," became ill some days before the saving Passion, his sisters had this report taken to our Savior, Who was then in Galilee. Nonetheless, He tarried yet two more days until Lazarus died; then He said to His disciples, "Let us go into Judea that I might awake My friend who sleeps." By this, of course, He meant the deep sleep of death. On arriving at Bethany, He consoled the sisters of Lazarus, who was already four days dead. Jesus groaned in spirit and was troubled at the death of His beloved friend. He asked, "Where have ye laid his body?" and He wept over him. When He drew nigh to the tomb, He commanded that they remove the stone, and He lifted up His eyes, and giving thanks to God the Father, He cried out with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth." And he that had been dead four days came forth immediately, bound hand and foot with the grave clothes, and Jesus said to those standing there, "Loose him, and let him go." This is the supernatural wonder wrought by the Savior that we celebrate this day. According to an ancient tradition, it is said that Lazarus was thirty years old when the Lord raised him; then he lived another thirty years on Cyprus and there reposed in the Lord. It is furthermore related that after he was raised from the dead, he never laughed till the end of his life, but that once only, when he saw someone stealing a clay vessel, he smiled and said, "Clay stealing clay." His grave is situated in the city of Kition, having the inscription: "Lazarus the four days dead and friend of Christ." In 890 his sacred relics were transferred to Constantinople by Emperor Leo the Wise, at which time undoubtedly the Emperor composed his stichera for Vespers, "Wishing to behold the tomb of Lazarus..."

16 ΣΑΒΒΑΤΟ ΤΟΥ ΛΑΖΑΡΟΥ 27 Μαρτίου Ο Λάζαρος είχε πατρίδα τη Βηθανία της Ιουδαίας και ήταν φίλος του Ιησού. Και μαζί με τις αδελφές του, πολλές φορές φιλοξένησαν και υπηρέτησαν τον Κύριο. Ο Λάζαρος λοιπόν, λίγες μέρες πρίν απο το Πάθος του Κυρίου, αρρώστησε και οι αδελφές του Μάρθα και Μαρία, έστειλαν να ειδοποιήσουν τον Ιησού, που έμενε τότε στη Γαλιλαία. Αλλ όταν έφθασε ο Ιησούς στην Ιουδαία, ο Λάζαρος ήδη είχε πεθάνει και ήταν θαμμένος τέσσερις ημέρες. Τότε ο Κύριος διέταξε να σηκώσουν την πέτρινα πλάκα που έφραζε τον τάφο και μετά απο προσευχή φώναξε δυνατά: «Λάζαρε δεύρο έξω». Ο τεσσάρων ημερών νεκρός Λάζαρος, αμέσως αναστήθηκε και σηκώθηκε τυλιγμένος στα σάβανα. Αυτό το υπερφυές θαύμα λοιπόν, γιορτάζουμε την ημέρα αυτή. Λέγεται, ότι ο Λάζαρος ήταν τότε 30 χρονών και αφού έζησε άλλα 30 χρόνια, τέλειωσε την επίγεια ζωή του στην Κύπρο το έτος 63. Το 890, ο αυτοκράτορας Λέων ο Σοφός, μετακόμισε το ιερό λείψανο του Λαζάρου στην Κωνσταντινούπολη. Απολυτίκιον του Λαζάρου Την κοινήν ανάστασιν προ του σου πάθους πιστούμενος, εκ νεκρών ήγειρας τον Λάζαρον Χριστέ ο Θεός όθεν και ημείς ως οι παίδες, τα της νίκης σύμβολα φέροντες, σοι τω νικητή του θανάτου βοώμεν Ωσαννά εν τοις υψίστοις, ευλογημένος ο ερχόμενος, εν ονόματι Κυρίου.
