And a Happy Mary, Mother of God to you! (Or the Naming and Circumcision to follow the Anglican calendar).We keep S. Basil and S. Gregory tomorrow - have they been transfered to the nearest Sunday for you, or do you actually keep them on the 1st?Happy New Year to you and yours, too.
Happy St Basil and Circumcision. We've never had Vasilopitta, but I look at a recipe on the web - looks like it would be tasty.
Hi RichardToday our parish had the Liturgy of St Basil, in honour of his feast, along with the Feast of the Circumcision. If it falls midweek we tend to have the service for the feast on the next Sunday........David, I still can`t get used to the greeting "Happy Circumcision" though it makes perfect theological sense. Cultural conditioning, I suppose !
Happy Circumcision does sound odd to me as well - LOL. But a wonderful feast.And Vasilopita looks very interesting: perhaps I'll have to drop into a Greek parish next year! ;-)
I can't really get behind the "Happy Circumcision" thing either, although I understand the reason for the feast (loved having to explain circumcision in a whispered voice during the sermon yesterday, grin). But, I can totally get behind Happy St. Basil's Day! We didn't have a Vasilopita at church yesterday.Ian, I thought your parish was Greek.
