With the onset of the Feast of Resurrection of our Lord, the liturgical calendar of the Indian Orthodox Church welcomed the new season- the joyous period from Kymtho till Feast of Pentecost. A word of caution (for this period) from the Late Lamented His Holiness Pope Shenouda III:
“Not fasting during the fifty days from Easter to Whitsun (Feast of Pentecost) is one thing.
But eating without restraint is something else.
Since these fifty days are a celebration period, neither fasting nor ‘matanias’ (prostrations in prayer) are allowed, but that does not mean that a person should lose his self-control, otherwise when he eats, whether it is at an appropriate time to eat or not, it will be in such a way that he harms himself spiritually and physically and loses the spiritual benefits of the Lenten fast and the Holy Week.” -Late Lamented His Holiness Pope Shenouda III (Page 33, Experiences in Life, translated by Mrs. Gylnis Younan, edition 1997)
