Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others.

Easter Egg Made of 7500 Roses Decorates Kiev Caves Lavra

April 10, 2012

On the Great Monday, florists started making an Easter egg of flowers in the Kiev Lavra of the Caves.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church reports on its website that a flower composition in the form of an Easter egg will be set up on the main Lavra square on April 10.

The egg of flowers will decorate the charitable fair Easter Basket that is fundraising for seriously ill teenagers.

7500 fresh red and yellow roses and greenery for decor is used to make the egg of 2.5 meters high. Florists and priests discussed a design of the composition and chose an "ethnic" red-yellow-green version.

The egg of roses will decorate the square for five to seven days, its authors believe.
