BREAD & SALT: SEASON 2: Acts of Mercy
We often hear about the importance of Prayer and Fasting. But there is also a third dimension of Lent. In English this quality is known as Almsgiving; in Armenian it’s called Voghormoutiun: “mercifulness.” It’s the Lenten virtue that takes us into the world, to bring the light Christ to other people.
The Eastern Diocese is pleased to introduce a new video series, titled “Bread and Salt: Stories from the Armenian Church.” In this inaugural episode, Kathryn Ashbahian explains the symbolism of the “Water Blessing” service performed in the Armenian Church on January 6, the Feast of the Nativity and Theophany of Our Lord.
