SPIRITUAL READING

Lights From the Carpathians

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Many modern advertisers promote their products by showing a before/after picture of a person who used their cleaning product, diet pills, etc. The point of the commercial or ad is to show results, that is, proof that the product “works”. The two Sundays after Pentecost are a meditation and a celebration of the impact of the presence of the Holy Spirit in the lives of men and women throughout history. It is in the lives of holy men and women – the Saints – that we see the fruit of the descent of the Holy Spirit and the reason why He was sent: for the sanctification and enlightenment of the faithful.

The first Sunday after Pentecost is known as the Sunday of All Saints in which we honor all the known and unknown holy men and women throughout history who were sanctified by the descent Holy Spirit. The second Sunday after Pentecost is another Sunday of All Saints but more focused: it honors the holy men and women of a certain nation or region such as All Saints of Russia, All Saints of Mount Athos. In 2005, His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas of blessed memory established within our Diocese the commemoration of All Saints of Carpatho-Rus on the second Sunday after Pentecost. Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 151: Giving Away the Kingdom (6/18/17)

Sunday, June 18, 2017

“Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it.” (Matthew 21: 43 RSV)

The New Testament is full of parables which Christ attempts to teach us using common day examples. We see in Matthew, Chapter 21, several parables. The parable of the two sons (versus 28 -32) and the parable of the wicked tenants (versus 33- 41) both teach us that we are not guaranteed a place in the Kingdom of God. Eternal life is truly a gift that God has given us but how we experience that gift depends entirely on how we use the gifts that God has given us as well as expressing our gratitude for those gifts.
