Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy

 
We venerate Thy most pure image, O Good One,
and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ God. 
Of Thine own will Thou wast pleased to ascend the Cross in the flesh 
to deliver Thy creatures from bondage to the enemy. 
Therefore with thanksgiving we cry aloud to Thee: 
Thou hast filled all with joy, O our Savior, 
by coming to save the world.

  1. Very nice pictures, and love the blue vestments. (I hated to miss another important Sunday, but my backup team is out of town so I couldn't leave.)

  2. LOL, ok, it's official: I'm crazy. Blue = purple. I wondered what was going on.

  3. No, you were right! Father is wearing blue (it's appointed for the feast of Annunciation tomorrow) and the rest are wearing purple...at least those who have purple...for Lent.

  5. I agree with the others... Great photos! I especially like the one of St. Anna with the sign for the church in the background.

  6. Love the pictures and hope so much that you will post more during Lent-I love reading the prayers and of course seeing the children. The little girl is gorgeous.

  7. Mary, that photo was a COMPLETE ACCIDENT. (c; I was waiting to go back in the church (I was at the end of the procession by virtue of taking photos) and thought I'd turn the camera around and try a blind shot to photograph my own icon (of St. Anna). Only later did I realize I got the sign in the photo too.
