I went to town to do some errands and it suddenly dawned on me that today was a public holiday, that is, Good Friday for the non Orthodox, but one could hardly realize that there was some sort of reverence for this day, as the only thing one could see were chocolate bunnies and candy eggs in the stores.  These pagan items, in fact items of ancient fertility cults, were entirely cut off from Christ’s Crucifixion and His Resurrection.  Because many people had this day off, we had numerous visitors here at the monastery, and we also managed to visit Vladika Lazar who was in good spirits.
