Orthodox Good Friday

Last night we went to an Orthodox “Good Friday” service.  They have a coffin for Jesus in the front of the church where people line up and pass by.  Normally they carry the coffin around the church or village afterwards but it started to downpour outside so the procession was cancelled.

 Saturday night they do a big bonfire and burn an effigy of Judas and prepare for the big feast of lamb ending the lent fast.  We will be grilling some Cyprus lamb on Sunday as well.

    Hi Guys,

    Your blog page is fantastic. I love keeping up with what you are doing. I haven’t seen the Passion of Christ yet either. I have heard so much about the suffering, that I have been hesitant to watch it. I can’t believe it has been out for three years already.
