...for those of us of the Orthodox faith.

There is a church where God lives, the Cathedral of St George in Novi Sad, with its quiet sanctity and its candles made of tallow and its scent of candle and incense and childhood memories, and the echoes of services sung over so many years.

I give you Our Father in Heaven, like you've never hear it prayed, like it should be prayed.

I give you the beauty of all of our churches and ancient monasteries, which come to us from the mists of time, from ancient Byzantium.

Happy Easter.

Man, I miss Europe. How beautiful.

My choir director is from Bulgaria and has worked hard to procure for us and allow us to sing some Orthodox hymns in Bulgarian, and they're just lovely.
