Exhausted

April 7th, 2007 (05:39 am)
current location: Tshwane, Gauteng
current song: Russian chant

I have an hour or two before leaving for church at 6:45 am. In the second half of Holy Week there is little chance to read my friends journals, much less write anything. From Thursday we have two services a day, lasting 3-4 hours each, and about 6-8 hours travelling time each day, which doesn't leave much for anything else except a few hours' sleep.

This year our Holy Week coincides with the Western one, in which Good Friday is a public holiday; in the years when they don't coincide there is more traffic on the roads, so the travelling time goes up to about 8-10 hours a day.

To my Christian LJ friends: kali Anastasi (Good Resurrection).

Holy Week

I have been privileged to experience
all of Holy Week at the Greek Orthodox
chuch here. This morning is the Liturgy
of St. Basil and tonight, the Paschal
Vigil. Of course, I am proceeding with
chrismation. Father said he's ready
whenever I say. Your example of the
lengths you go to so that you can
participate strengthen my resolve to
do the same.
