A reminder that I am following the Orthodox calendar for Easter this year, which means that I have just begun the Triduum.
I give thanks that I have managed to stay true to my Lenten regime of abstaining from all meat and dairy products. I am now bringing that to a close, marking Good Friday with a 24-hour fast from all solid food.
I am only a bit over five hours into it and my stomach is already rumbling, though that is probably more psychological than anything.
Pray that I may be steadfast in my discipline and in my devotions.
