I just came back from the Holy Wednesday service of the Anointing at St Andrew’s chapel here in Edinburgh, and I read this wonderful description and background on the significance of the service by a wonderful blogger I follow. This is my first Holy Week as a christmated Orthodox Christian, and tomorrow (Holy Thursday) marks the two year anniversary of my introduction to the Divine Liturgy and the Orthodox Faith. A year ago today, I stood in St Nicholas Cathedral in Washington with the friend who had first introduced me to the Cathedral, which has become my adopted parish and spiritual home.
