Just a brief little note to wish all my bloggy friends a Happy New Year. And to all my Orthodox readers Happy Feast of St. Basil! What a joy and a blessing to hear the service for the cutting of St. Basil’s bread after Divine Liturgy this morning. Alas, no one in my family found the coin. (Want to know more about what I am talking about? Check out these articles Vasilopita and/or Basil the Great). This is more of a Greek Orthodox tradition but I am glad that my Orthodox Church in America (which has Russian Orthodox roots) has this custom.
May God pour out His blessings on us in 2012!
