Christ is Risen! Χριστός ανέστη!
I have a new perspective on Lent, Holy Week, and Pascha after serving for the first time this Lent as a psaltis (chanter) for the duration… so much more joyful and less somber when you go to all of the Orthros (morning prayer) services before the liturgies during this time; such beautiful hymns, odes, and prayers that I’d never heard all of before! (ok, I did miss a couple — but made most of them!)
It is amazing how the services are so full of both challenge and sustenance for our souls during this time to help us get through the great fast… I’m constantly amazed by the depth and wisdom the fathers of the church have given us over all the centuries!
I hope for all to have had such a blessed Lent and Feast of Feasts!

So. I’m resurrecting the blog yet again. Seems like the randomness of tweets and facebook posts just don’t do that much for me. The question is, is anyone out there to read it? Is there any desire for some of the old content to be resurrected? Just for memory’s sake, I’m going to bring back a few really old posts that I liked from way-back-when.
The old site was hacked and was acting as a spam-farm; sorry about that. I’ll try not to let that happen again.
As I do port some of the old content from the previous incarnations of scriptus, they will end up with the original post dates and will all be ‘older’ than this post. I will not be posting every post; just ones that I liked for whatever reason. Also, we had stopped posting from mid 2007 on… so that gap is because there was no content at all.
