The Way of the Lord

Through the Triodion and Pentecostarion


Not only fasting, but Christian asceticism in general, voluntary shame in confession, and self-reproach, yet also the positive asceticism of the desire for the gift of Pentecost, place us on the path of Christ and wound the beast of our ego. By imparting a taste of death, they are transformed into the seed of resurrection and, in fact, they prepare our bodies for the Common Resurrection.
