The Sunday of Orthodoxy at St Nino!
Fr Matthew looked regal in his purple vestments and the ladies were colorfully dressed and I thought this would be a fantastic photo…but the battery on the good camera was dead…so alas I used the rather poor camera on my phone, and so it’s a bit blurry, but still a pretty pic.
The Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy and the first Sunday of Great Lent. It is the celebration of the victory of the iconodules over the iconoclasts by the decision of the Seventh Ecumenical Council. Therefore, the service is to commemorate the restoration of icons for use in services and private devotional life of Christians.
