How quiet it has been today after all the services of Holy Week and Pascha, and how welcome this has been. We discovered that we ran out of candles and barely had enough for the main service. Although we quickly reordered candles, they will not arrive in time for Thomas Sunday so we shall have to come up with an idea or two to deal with this. We have been enjoying the visit of Father Vasili and of David Goa and his wife Anna Altman who, by the way is my goddaughter. Her knitting is exquisite and I asked her to knit me an ecclesiastical scarf for next winter.
