July 22 - (August 4 OC).
Unless you've grown up enjoying after-Easter-chocolate-special offers, dying the eggs red is new to you. So, where did we get this tradition? None less than the Holy Myrrhbearer, the Equal-to-the-Apostles, Saint Mary Magdalene.
Don't just dye the eggs! Know why you do that! Learn the true story!
One interesting thing happened as soon as this Paterikon #34 was out; we got a call from a village the Saint had visited on her way to Rome. It was a chanter from that village's parish, and he ordered five hundred copies, one for each inhabitant of the town and those from a couple of neighboring villages.
Available in English and Greek.
May 21, 2022: The English version is being printed in a sixth edition; please allow two to three weeks for delivery.
With each Paterikon book, feel free to choose a "Paterikon Purse" of your liking and either a fasting or non-fasting treat.
