Spiritual Reading

The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost - What Have We to Do with Thee?

Friday, July 11, 2014

"And when He was come to the other side into the land of the Gergesenes, there met Him two possessed with demons, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. " While the men in the boat were yet wondering what manner of man this was that even the winds and the sea obeyed Him, the demons come to proclaim the answer. Although Mark and Luke speak of one man who was possessed by a legion of demons (Mk. 5:9, Lk. 8:27), understand that this one man was one of the two mentioned by Matthew, evidently, the more notorious of the two. Jesus came alone towards them, since no one dared to bring them to Him, so fierce were they. They dwelt among the tombs because the demons wish to inspire the belief that the souls of those who have died become demons. Let no one believe this: for when the soul departs from a man, it does not wander about the earth. For the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God (Wis. of Sol. 3:1), and the souls of sinners are also led away, as was the soul of the rich man, Lazarus. Read more...

Christian Stewardship



Develop

NEW!!!  The Diocesan Stewardship Commission has been collecting data from around the Diocese by means of the Parish Stewardship Surveys that have been returned to the Commission by the appointed Parish Stewardship Coordinators. The Coordinators were to have been appointed by the beginning of Great Lent in 2014, and the Surveys returned by May 1, 2014. As of June 10, 2014, of our 82 parishes and missions, 60 Parish Stewardship Coordinators have been named, and we have received 38 surveys. While in the process of review of current stewardship practices to be included in the Parish Stewardship Survey, the parish council is now to develop a plan for the growth of the stewardship of time, talent and treasure in its parish.
