Christ the Saviour welcomes Archbishop MARK for Presanctified Liturgy & Bridegroom Matins - 04/07/15

On Tuesday, April 7 2015, Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church in Harrisburg, PA welcomed His Eminence Archbishop Mark, as he led us in the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, along with gathered local clergy and faithful. At the conclusion of the Liturgy he blessed a processional lamp and deacons candle donated in memory of, and for the health and salvation of the Atty and Gelles families.
The same evening His Eminence led our community at the final Bridegroom Matins.  We are grateful for the visit of Archbishop Mark, and were encouraged in our Holy Week struggle by his presence and pastoral care. Many years, O Master!
Holy Tuesday Troparia at the “Lord I Call”
As the Lord was going to His voluntary Passion, He said to the Apostles on the way: “Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man shall be delivered up, as it is written of Him.” Come, therefore, let us also go with Him, purified in mind! Let us be crucified with Him and die through Him to the pleasures of this life! Then we shall live with Him and hear Him say: “I go no more to the earthly Jerusalem to suffer, but to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God. I shall raise you up to the Jerusalem on high in the Kingdom of Heaven.”
