25th Anniversary of the Repose of Fr. Kallistos

On Saturday, November 11, 2017 Archimandrite Seraphim and his brotherhood gathered at the monastic cemetery to serve a pannikhida for Hieromonk Kallistos, the founder of Holy Cross Monastery, on the 25th anniversary of Fr. Kallistos’ repose. At the memorial meal following, Fr. Kallistos’ life and example were recalled; Fr. Seraphim then exhorted the brotherhood to persevere in their monastic calling and in the bonds of love and unity, thereby rendering honor to Fr. Kallistos, by whose prayers the brotherhood continues to carry on his legacy.

With profound spiritual joy in the Lord I greet you all on this jubilant, joyous night of the Matins of the Resurrection of Christ and Paschal Liturgy! I greet you on the Resurrection of Christ, the most triumphant and exultant of all holidays! It is the feast of feast and the festival of festivals, as the Paschal canon declares. But why is this so? Because in all the other holidays, the Lord is presented in the humble form of a servant, but in His Resurrection from the Tomb on the third day He is displayed in all His power and glory, as the Victor over hades and death.
