Quoting scalpel

 

 

 I remember some Orthodox Christian neighbors of ours in my childhood neighbourhood who were fasting...is this "paskalya çöreği"  related to the fasting? it is yummy! {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}

 

 The çörek is the yummy pastry you get to eat this weekend at Paskalya (or Diriliş Bayramı - Easter when Christians celebrate that Jesus rose from the dead after dying on the cross for our sins. The fasting is the 40 day period before that. Diriliş Bayramı is a celebration and feasting time.

 My penance was to read the whole page.  

 

You rather had done 50 Hail Marys and also 50 the Lord´s Prayers? On your bare knees of course?

 Yet two things to learn about. After reading your post I started to search for both prayers and already found some new and interesting things. But, hey, why 50 and why on bare knees?

Those prayers were the penance my mother and father got when they did something wrong. They had to tell it to the priest in confession. On bare knees was thought to be a more horrible penance and the numbers? That depended on the ´sin´ one committed - stealing cookies from your mom, picking apples from the neighbour´s tree etcetera - but also on the mood of the priest. I don´t think there was a list of which sin would get X-number of prayers. Happily these days are over, at least in my country. I never went to confession because it was not compulsory any more, though my upbringing was quite strict Catholic.

According to the Old Testament there áre rules about what to eat or not also for Christians. See Leviticus 7, 22-27

 

 Hi Trudy. 

Actually those rules do not apply to christians, but to jews.

Could be, but if the Old Testament and it´s rules doesn´t apply to Christians then why was the priest in my childhood parish often preaching out of it? I remember a lot of sermons coming from Kings, Psalm, Proverbs, Song of Solomon and more.

In christianism there´s no a word for kosher food, because there´s not taboo about what to eat. Otherwise christians wouldn´t eat hamburguer and cheese. {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}
