Here in Ottawa I am on the old calendar
(as I have said before, I've been on both
and my only thing I can say is that I am sad
that we don't share all the feast days together).
the Feast of the Theotokos' Entrance in the Temple
Such a beautiful liturgy.
Our priest reminded us of how the Mother of God became
a Temple by becoming Christ's Mother,
and that she entered the Temple
and that Christ IS the temple;
and that St. Paul reminds us that we too are a temple of the Holy Spirit.
I can only pray that I will learn to allow God
more of myself so that I too can
fulfill the calling of what it means to be really human;
to be a temple of the Holy Spirit glorifying God.
As you can see from the above picture,
I had a good friend over for dinner;
the friend supplied the salmon and I the vegetables
It felt very festive to celebrate the feast with a good meal.
