Easter Blessings to my Orthodox Readers!
Today is Easter in the Orthodox Church tradition. My friend Risa Poniros--who is Greek Orthodox--has been a wonderful pilgrim who has taught me much about the Greek Orthodox tradition by first asking me, "Did you see 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'? That's my family." And her family taught and teaches me much about the Greek Orthodox tradition.
On pilgrimage to the Middle East last year, the Greek Orthodox monks in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the monks at St. Catherine of the Sinai Monastery proved to be able pilgrim guides on an incredible journey.
Dear friends of the Orthodox tradition: Easter Blessings!
