Russian Orthodox Church Cardiff : Kazan Icon of the Mother of God
Our parish clergy and a group of parishioners from our Cardiff and Cheltenham parishes made a pilgrimage to the ROCOR Cathedral in Chiswick, where the Baptism of the Lord was celebrated with great and very visible joy by the faithful who gathered in the beauty of the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Mother of God.We now look forward to our festal Liturgy and the Great Blessing of the Waters in St John's on Sunday, and hope to see similar childlike excitement and joy on the faces of both old and young, as we partake of the very tangible blessings of the feast! ...

“MARY BORE A MUTE BABE” POEM BY ST. EPHREM THE SYRIAN(TRANSLATED BY KATHLEEN MCVEY)Mary bore a mute Babethough in him were hidden all our tongues.Joseph carried Him, yet hidden in Him wasa silent nature older than everything.The Lofty One became like a little child, yet hidden in Him wasa treasure of Wisdom that suffices for all.He was lofty but he sucked Mary’s milk,and from His blessings all creation sucks,He is the Living Breast of living breath;by His life the dead were suckled, and they revived.Without the breath of air no one can live;without the power of the Son no one can rise.Upon the living breath of the One Who vivifies alldepend the living beings above and below.As indeed He sucked Mary’s milk,He has given suck—life to the universe.As again He dwelt in His mother’s womb,in His womb dwells all creation.Mute He was as a babe, yet He gaveto all creation all His commands. ...

THE PIERCED-SIDE OF THE SAVIOUR: THE NEW GATE OF PARADISEI ran to all Your limbs, and from them I received every kind of gift. Through the side pierced with the sword I entered the garden fenced in by the sword. Let us enter in through the side which was pierced... for the side of the Second Adam has been pierced, and from it comes forth a flow of water to quench the fire of the First Adam.St Ephrem the Syrian: Commentary on the Diatessaron ...
