Bright Monday

Christ is risen! Христос Воскресе!  Χριστος Ανεστι!

A tradition at my parish is to have a Flower Auction on Bright Monday.  This is a fun day and a fund raiser for the parish.

We start the day with Divine Liturgy.  It was a real treat hearing the choir singing Balakirev's The Angel Cried.  We rarely hear it at our church, but I hope that we will be hearing it more and more.  I hear and enjoy it everywhere but at my parish. 

It is also great seeing the church so beautiful.  To me for Pascha everything should be as bright as possible.  That is why I have a set of white vestments which is very bright.
