The air of Christmas holidays and Christmas divine services is always elevated and joyful. From the very beginning Christmas is a family holiday, as Love of God the Father to people is at its apogee, namely, in the embodiment of his Son. Thus, this Sacrament for thousands of years is remembered during Holy Supper in the close family circle.

Nineteenth of January according to Julian calendar is the Epiphany. Its second name is Water Consecration or Jordan, from the name of Jordan River in Palestine. Jordan is a popular name for Christian ceremony for water consecration. This holiday was established to remember the miraculous Epiphany of the Most Holy at Jordan River, where John the Baptist was preaching and baptizing. Jesus Christ came here in the age of 30 from Galilee. Baptizing of Jesus Christ is a holiday with the same significance as Christmas. Thematic issue of Voskresinnia Radio was dedicated to this first Christian sacrament, beginning of blessed unity of man and God.

This year Orthodox and Greek Catholics celebrate the Easter on April 23, while Roman Catholics - on April 16. Such a discrepancy is stipulated by different calendars: Julian and Gregorian. Roman Catholic Church uses the calendar, introduced by Pope Hryhoriy III in 16th century, who corrected the difference between astronomical and calendar year. Differences in calendars were dwelt upon by astronomer, doctor of physical and mathematical sciences Ivan Klymyshyn (photo 46), author of book «Calendar and Easter» in the interview of director of publishing house «Nova Zoria», editor of the magazine with the same name, priest Ihor Pelehatyy (photo 46).
