Share all the nuances that you need to know.
What kind of holiday?
In Orthodoxy, Pure Thursday is one of the most important holidays. It is believed that on this day Jesus Christ held the Last Supper with his apostles and taught them the Holy Communion.
What to do on Pure Thursday:
- In the evening, put a silver spoon in a bowl of water, and in the morning each family member should wash up with this water, saying: “Everything that the soul and body toil, everything is washed off on Pure Thursday”.
- Clean the house. Progeneralte as it should: special attention should be paid to the cleanliness of the windows, refrigerator, stove and sanitary ware. You fill the surrounding space with positive energy and literally “clean out” everything negative.
- Forgive all offenses and get rid of negative emotions. Last year, leave all the anger, anger, irritation, forgive the enemies and all those who have ever caused you evil. Destroying the negative in your own soul, you will find extraordinary calm and bring yourself closer to happiness.
- Swim or go to the bath. The first method is more difficult — the water in April is still cold. But bath procedures just right. Sunrise is the most favorable time to visit the bath. Do not forget to pour cold water several times, imagining how it washes away all your sorrows.
- Bake Easter cakes, Easter eggs, paint eggs. It is better not to buy pastries in the store, but to find at least the simplest recipe and prepare delicacies yourself. Cook with prayers and mantras.
- Visit the temple for confession and holy communion. This is not necessary if you are a staunch atheist and do not consider yourself to be a religion.
Try to do all of the above, do not miss this opportunity to be filled with the blessed divine energy.
What time and when does the service start
Believers must attend the temple on Pure Thursday to pray for their sins, ask God for help, health, and well-being.
Service usually begins in the evening, on the eve of Good Friday, at about 8:00 pm, but in some churches earlier. You can find out the exact time only in the temple that you plan to visit.
And what is the date of the great holiday in 2018? This will happen on the fifth of April, so be prepared in advance.
