holy week

Today, He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the Cross.
He who clothes Himself in light as in a garment stood naked at the judgement.
He who is the King of the angels is arrayed in a crown of thorns.
He who wraps the heavens in clouds is wrapped in the purple of mockery.

It's nearing the end of Orthodoxy Holy Week, the week before Pascha (Easter). I'm looking forward to going home tomorrow to celebrate the Good Friday lamentations, the Saturday morning liturgy, and finally the glorious Pascha service itself, late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

You can find out the basics about Orthodox Holy Week here.
