The nuns living at the Christ the Bridegroom Monastery in Burton, Ohio, in the Byzantine Eparchy of Parma, have just published an online guide for praying from home during Holy Week.
As the monastery website notes:
Holy Week and Pascha (Easter) without being able to go to church??? Nuns to the rescue. Our monastery is just a little family, not so unlike yours, living the life of the Church in an intense way. We are here to help give Byzantine families/couples ideas and resources for Holy Week and Pascha for your domestic church (the church of your home), because the Resurrection isn’t cancelled! We need to remember now more than ever the hope we have in Christ’s destruction of death and His gift of eternal life. This current crisis is an opportunity to revive our domestic churches and begin to pray (or pray more) as a family/couple and individually. And, when we pray, we must remember that the whole Body of Christ—the Church, is with us.
We are excited to share with you this project we’ve been working on for the past week! Please share it quickly with others, in time for Holy Week to begin! God bless you!
The document, Holy Week and Pascha for the Domestic Church, can be found right here.
