Christ is Risen!
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
In preparation for the upcoming pilgrimage to Greece and Constantinople — a downloadable interactive pdf file with the Commemorations, Hymns, Reflections, Contemplations, Homilies and Readings of the Day — for each of the 15 days of the pilgrims’ journey. An appendix contains brief excerpts from the lives of the saints commemorated according to the “new style” calendar — the calendar in use in many of the places where the pilgrims will worship.
Designed for smartphones, the pdf contains embedded links for easy internal navigation — which does not require the phone to be connected to the web. However, in some cases, in order to access and store the pdf directly to one’s smartphone, a third-party app like Adobe Acrobat Reader, available through the App Store, Google Play, Amazon App Store, etc. will be necessary.
The readings include the changeable portions from the Divine Liturgy for the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ, which pilgrims are due to celebrate on the Cycladic island of Andros.
God speed you on your way — and back again!
Pray for us.
