On Pascha, a man removes the bridle from the horse of his body, and no longer holding back, rushes off somewhere. As a rule, the master of the horse, that is, the man himself, has no idea where the long-suppressed desire will take him. Fr. Andrei Chizhenko talks about what is important to remember during these days.
We honor all the righteous of the Old Testament, including those who became the Savior’s ancestors according to the flesh, because these people burned like candles of God in the darkness of paganism, and lived in the hope of the coming of the Messiah and mankind’s deliverance from slavery to the devil, sin, and death.
The worship of the Orthodox Church is closely connected with the sacred history of the Old and New Testaments. It as if illustrates this history from the very beginning, symbolically and spiritually, deeply connected with it.
