An insightful reflection on the beginning of a new Liturgical Year of grace is offered by Father Terence Baz. In part, he writes: "As we come to the beginning of the New Liturgical Year, the Orthodox Church calls us to lift up our hearts, minds and souls to Christ as we journey through the Church’s seasons in our worship. The beauty of our church buildings teaches us that Christ, through Whom the universe was created, is the foundation of the universe in all its beauty. Likewise, in the Church’s iconography, we see stories that reveal how God has intervened in human history."
