The Great Fast: Cross-Veneration Week signals the mid-point of our journey into Light. As a child, did you ever run up a see-saw and try walking to the center, struggling to keep your balance? You know that once you reach its mid-point, you need a foot planted on either side of the center to maintain your balance. … You decide to jump off, or you maintain a steady, balanced position and descend the other side of the board.

   Like children eagerly anticipating the challenge of the see-saw, we begin our greatfast journey with joy-filled hearts, determined to find our particular pattern of balance to carry us through this season of repentance. … We have reached the midpoint of our penitential journey to Holy Pascha. Are we ready to give in to the temptation to terminate the journey?
