Great Lent: The Journey to the Empty Tomb

"As the sharp edge of winter cuts across February with its long shadows and long cold nights, Orthodox Christians know that this time of year is the herald of Great Lent, that solemn but beautiful 40-day journey to the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. With anticipation we look forward to that Lenten journey and what awaits us at the end of our spiritual travels: the Feast of Feasts, that great day of Pascha in which we proclaim, "Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death." Archpriest Stephen Rogers
