Finally tomorrow is Friday and I can get some rest! If the kids decide to behave 🙂
On that note I leave you with one of the most important chants of the Holy Week from Friday night lamentations service, Great Moses chanted by Protopsaltis Bachir Osta and choir.
And for those who enjoy the Arabic twist or flavor, here it is again by Melkite Protopsalt Fouad Harraka from Australia:
Great Moses mystically prefigured this present day when he said ‘and God blessed the seventh day.’ For this is the blessed Sabbath, this the day of rest on which the only-begotten Son of God rested from all his works. Through the dispensation in accordance with death, he kept the Sabbath in the flesh, and, returning once again to what he was, through the Resurrection he has granted us eternal life, for he alone is good and loves mankind.
