Blessed is the Entrance of Thy Saints


Reflection by Fr. Antony Hughes on May 25, 2014 at St. Mary Orthodox Church in Cambridge, MA. 

This has been a very wrenching week for St. Mary Church. We lost two amazing people, people of great faith, and people that we love very deeply - Mary Sioras and Donald DiFiore. In the middle of the Liturgy, when I was bringing the Gospel out in the Little Entrance, there's a prayer that the priest says that you don't hear. "Blessed is the entrance of Thy saints." Now, why do we say that?
