Χριστός Ανέστη

"Some "Russian Émigré Humour": 

Here is some Russian humour, which is published in The Russian Textbook for English People: A Russian emigre is interviewed in America:
- "What is the medical system like in Russia?"
He shrugs his shoulders. - "You can't complain really."
- "And what is the education like in Russia?"
- "Well, you can't complain, really."
- "And what are the roads like in Russia?"
- "You can't complain".
 "So why did you leave for America, then?"
-" Because you can complain!"

(I think this explains it all).

Dear-in-Christ, Everyone, bless!

Christ is Risen!  Truly He is Risen!

The May issue of “The Shepherd," is now up on our Brotherhood website and you can access it directly at <>   

Please pray for us throughout the month and beyond.

As it is the Real May Day, I will copy below a joke about her people, sent me by a Russian damsel in our congregation here at Brookwood, to cheer you all up.

In the love of our Risen Saviour,

Fr Alexis,sinner

P.S. Remember the Great Feast of the Ascension this coming Thursday, one of the most important in the Church Year as it embraces our hope.
