    Presanctified and fasting

    So tomorrow is my first presanctified liturgy, and it’s in the evening. As far as I understand it, we fast from at least noon for evening liturgies. But how does that work with the Lenten schedule of fasting until noon or even 3 p.m. (iirc)? We just don’t eat from midnight until the following...

    Getting your priest’s blessing

    What things in our day-to-day would we seek out our priest’s blessing for? Is it supposed to be everything and a vast amount of economia is employed? Just big stuff like job changes? Only overtly Orthodox things? I’m considering a shift in endeavors and don’t know if/when I should inform...

    So what exactly is spiritual fatherhood for laity?

    I've run across this article: https://www.pravmir.com/parish-priests-spiritual-fathers/ It makes sense that the priest is the de factor spiritual father of his parishioners, especially in the general sense of guidance. I see the distinction between advice from a priest vs. requiring...

    Where to buy icons?

    I tried searching the forum and didn't come up with much. Where does everyone recommend for purchasing icons? Anywhere that should be avoided? I have an Ancient Faith catalog, but wanted to ask around for other sources, too.

    for a 5-year-old boy

    The nephew of my cousin’s husband (if that make sense). All I know is he has COVID, and he’s fighting for his life. Lord, have mercy.

    We sing a hymn with a little Arabic in it, and my daughter noticed that Aleluia was pretty much the same in both languages. Is it a word that has made it into all languages largely unchanged?

    Glory to God

    Today was the first time I’ve personally prayed to a saint outside of services and prayer times, and within 2 hours, my prayer was answered.  It was Saint Phanourios and my son’s baptismal cross.  ❤️

    Internet choirs

    So... are they real?  I've seen a few since Pascha and instead of just enjoying them, I'm thinking, "How does every one of those people have equipment that produces studio-quality sound?"  Do I just underestimate our technology these days?  Why can't I just "shut up" and enjoy the music?  ??? ...

    For my neck

    It hurts every day, but today has been particularly wearing.  I can't do the very obvious, practical thing right now.  I'd just like some fortitude, I guess.

    cookie molds

    I was perusing some threads about Pascha and feasting recipes and came across the recipe for ma'amoul, but the link for the molds no longer works.  Does anyone know where Orthodox-themed molds might be found?  I found a lot of what are probably traditional molds, but nothing Orthodox.  I did run...

    Saint James, the brother of our Lord

    A friend of a friend was wanting to know how he came to be canonized.  The Dead Sea Scrolls were mentioned as the reason he was canonized.  Any light to shed?  I'll poke around OrthoWiki and other sources later, too.
