I see Your bridal chamber completely engulfed with light, O my Savior, and I do not have a wedding garment to enter and enjoy Your Brightness; fill the garment of my soul with light and save me, O Lord, save me.

Exapostilarion, Matins, Holy Thursday.

My thoughts turn to you, dear priests, I want to reflect with you on some aspects of our priestly life in the context of the Divine Liturgy.

The whole Church draws life from the Eucharist, all the more then must the life of a priest be “shaped” by the Eucharist.

With these sentiments, I send you my heartfelt blessing, and I wish you the profound joy of Easter.


Bishop of Saint Josaphat
