East is east and west is west…

I am proud to have a couple of friends who are priests of the Romanian Catholic Church, following the Byzantine liturgy. In their case, this also includes the Julian Calendar (as reformed by Julius Caesar), as opposed to our Gregorian Calendar. This means that, whereas we are celebrating Easter this coming Sunday, Fr Augustin kindly sent me Easter greetings just as he and his congregation have only begun Lent! For them, Easter will be on 27th April. I hope I remember to send him Paschal greetings, just as we are about to celebrate Ascension.
