Forgive Me, A Sinner
Creation of Man & The Expulsion from Paradise
And so, Great Lent began Sunday evening with the Sunday of the Expulsion from Paradise and Forgiveness Vespers. As fallen mankind we remember painfully our fall from Paradise and our origin from God, and seek forgiveness from Him, and begin with forgiveness from one another. Back in Indianapolis with friends and family for this powerful and cleansing Sunday. Truly a gift from God. And now, to all of my faithful readers and commenters: Please forgive me, for I am a sinner. Forgive me for all the pride and arrogance that I display here and on your blogs, and above all, forgive me for sinning against you in thought, word, and deed; in what I have done and in what I have left undone. May the Lord show us all his lovingkindness and great mercy, and give us strength for our journey to Pascha!
