Slava Isusu Christu! Slava Na V'iki!

It's been years since we attended our Ukrainian Catholic parish in Rochester, NY but I still fondly remember this greeting.

You greet someone with: Slava Isusu Christu! and they reply with Slava Na V'iki!
which means: Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

I asked Katie if she remembered any of the Ukrainian she learned when we lived in NY but while she fondly remembers quite a bit of our time there she doesn't recall any of the little Ukrainian songs she learned or phrases. :-(

Had a busy day getting ready for Easter tomorrow. Since we spend a good part of Thursday and Friday at church, or getting read for church or travelling to and from church today was THE day to get anything done. Three braided Easter Egg breads (2 for neighbors, one for us) grasshopper pie, cheesecake, and lemon pound cake plus making dinner...PHEW! I'm pooped.
Tomorrow we are having grilled pork chops, herbed rice, asparagus, glazed carrots, salad, bread, and all the goodies we can eat!!
