This should start an 'interesting' discussion, but as I understand it, Father Damick is correct. "No, Pascha does not have to be after Passover (and other Orthodox urban legends) - March 31, 2015 by Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick " http://blogs.ancientfaith.com/roads...ssover-and-other-orthodox-urban-legends/

Well, I think it is scandalous that all Christians cannot celebrate the Lord's Pascha on the same date.

Would our Lord approve of this? Or would we treat us as He did the Pharisees and the scribes?

Some of my friends adhere rigidly to the Orthodox date of Pascha, yet they don't go to Church on Great and Holy Friday because "they have a living to earn."

And the times when the Great Fridays are actually on the same date - they sleep in.

I think there has often been someplace in the world where Easter was celebrated on a different date. I believe there were controversies when it was discovered the old Irish Church had a different Easter date.
If you are the True Church you are already celebrating on the correct day -- of course it may only be the True Church to you :-).
Scandal? Maybe if a Church celebrated it on another day than Sunday.
