Badarak in the Age of Pandemic

Next Step #618: Holy/Great Thursday and the Institution of the Last Supper, the Holy Badarak, that is, the means by which we connect to the life-saving Crucifixion and celebrate the Resurrection. Thanks to technology we’re watching in our living rooms, with candles, incense and prayers. The message of St. Basil is read during the Liturgy explaining the essence of the Eucharist: “Never look at this as bread and wine” … it is the life-giving blood and body of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Vazken shares insights about the Badarak today and the adaptation to ultra-pandemics in the past. How to participate in the virtual ceremonies?
