It was a beautiful day celebrating Easter with family and friends. A lot of preparation goes into our annual Easter feast. I baked bread.I dyed red eggs. (And inadvertently, my hands as well.)I made my family’s favorite potato salad. The menu also included roasted potatoes and carrots, Greek salad, orzo salad and spinach pie. And of course, a leg of lamb. (You can see last year’s Easter lamb & festivities video here.)The table was set early. (A little guy needed some blueberries fast.) We started the meal breaking Tsoureki, the traditional Easter bread. We read St. John Chrysostom’s Paschal Homily (c. 347–407). The egg cracking contest was underway…
…and it’s Benjamin for the win!The feast is abundant, eat your fill! All of you enjoy the wealthy banquet of the faith and mercy of God.
Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice! Christ is risen, and life reigns! Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in a tomb!
