As mentioned above, there is a difference of 13 days between the Gregorian and the Julian calendars.
This new calendar, called the Gregorian calendar, was more astronomically correct and is the calendar used by most of the world today.
In 1923, an inter-Orthodox congress was held in Constantinople attended by representatives of some, but not all, Orthodox churches.
This congress made the very controversial decision to follow a revised calendar that was essentially the same as the Gregorian calendar, for all things except the celebration of Pascha, which continued to be calculated according to the original Julian calendar.
The Orthodox Church continues to follow this formula exactly as prescribed by the Council of Nicea.
However, in modern times, the Western Church has rejected the part of the Nicene formula that requires that Pascha “always follow the Jewish Passover.” Western theologians (and, unfortunately, a few misguided Orthodox Theologians as well) now claim that this provision was never a part of the council’s intention, saying that it is not necessary for Pascha to follow the Jewish Passover.
There is a thirteen-day difference between the two calendars, the Julian calendar being thirteen (13) days behind the Gregorian.
