I apologize to those I wasn’t able to ask forgiveness for this Sunday. Please forgive me for this and all my other sins: both of negligence and commission.
Forgiveness Vespers was so incredible for us last year, and I knew it would be again for us this time as well. Now we’re Orthodox, in a new parish, and a little more practically wise in terms of what the Great Fast is like.
But I’m still not ready for it … until the sweat, tears, and healthy humiliation of this blessed service.
