Said the Robber to Christ, "Remember me, when You come into Your Kingdom."
"While the sinful woman brought oil myth, the disciple came to an agreement with transgressors.
She rejoiced to pour out what was very precious;
he made haste to sell the One who is above all price.
She acknowledged Christ as Lord;
he severed himself from the Master.
She was set free;
but Judas became the slave of the enemy.
Grievous was his lack of love!
Great was her repentance!
Grant such repentance also to me, O Savior, who has suffered for our sake, and save us."
(Orthos - Holy Wednesday)
This reminded me to not be proud and humble myself in repentance even for the small transgressions.
The bittersweet beet relish is made. The pickled eggs representing new life are made.
