    Thank you, Fr. Sean, for your outstanding reflection on Pascha at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan. The photos taken by the Public Affairs Office are magnificent, too, and bring back fond memories of my own celebrations in the Romanian Chapel there from 2005 to 2010. That chapel is, of course, a true gem and a spiritual oasis in a dismal place ridden with violence and Islamic extremism. May the Risen Christ continue to sustain your service to the U.S. and Coalition forces in harm’s way and bring you home safely.

    Christ is Risen! Fr. Sean, and how wonderful and blessed to read of your experience there (and how mysterious the Lord works to be writing after Archpriest Alexander Webster – with whom I myself shared several services while stationed in Iraq).

    Your vivid detail brings to mind my own experience with an entire company of Georgian soldiers (and Fr. Alexander Webster) in a palace in Baghdad during Lent in 2007. How faithful they were – and how blessed we were to share the experience with them! For it has never been truer than when we find ourselves so far from home that we feel the presence of Him who sustains us:

    “Wherever two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matt 18:20).

    God speed for your safe return.

    Kissing your right hand,
