We made it through our first Lent as Orthodox Christians. I can’t say we did the greatest job at fasting, but we tried. I think that we did okay, so that’s good. I know that I can’t expect perfection right at first, but as long as we’re constantly improving in our relationship with God I think that we’re on the right track.
The boys got to participate in the Paschal procession. Preston was the Holy Torch Bearer (at least, I think that was his title!), and Russell got to carry the Holy Water.
