Anthony Cassar

Congratulations to Anthony Cassar (lead altar server at Mother of God Orthodox Church, Princeton NJ) took first place in the 2014 NJ State Wrestling Tournament - 195 pound Weight Class - on his 18th birthday (9 March 2014).  He set his eyes on the state tournament last year; made no excuses, worked hard, persevered, showed courage, actualized his dream and experienced victory! Anthony’s record for the year is 43 wins and no loses. Anthony is the first Montgomery High school wrestler to win a state championship. Anthony blessed himself with the sign of the Cross before every match, witnessing to all those watching that his faith is his foundation. He never missed Sunday church throughout his wrestling career always putting God first.  A fierce competitor, he always showed respect and honor for his opponents. Upon winning the state title, Anthony did not beat his chest and celebrate at his opponent’s expense. His first reaction was to hug his opponent and congratulate him for a great match. God bless you Anthony!

New Book for Children

The Miracle of the Red Egg
by Elizabeth Crispina Johnson
illustrated by Daria Fisher

At Pascha, Orthodox all over the world dye and bless red eggs. Here is the story of how this tradition started -- way back in apostolic times, with Saint Mary Magdalene and a blessed miracle that dazzled the unbelieving Roman emperor with the reality and power of Christ's Resurrection.

Elizabeth Crispina Johnson lives in an earth-sheltered house under a hill in western New York State. She is a member of Saint John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Rochester NY. The Paschal eggs she dyes come from the chickens on her family’s homestead, her favorite being from the tiny Bantams whose eggs are no bigger than her thumb. She has two books previously published by Ancient Faith Publishing: "And Then Nicholas Sang" and "What Do You Hear, Angel?"
