SPIRITUAL READING
 

The Sunday of the Last Judgement - A Homily By Fr. George Dimopoulos

Friday, February 09, 2018

Dear brethren, today’s gospel reading tells us about the Second Coming of Jesus. When Christ came the first time, He came as a very humble infant to the stable of Bethlehem. The second time He will come in His glory and in His dignity. The first time He came, many people did not notice His arrival and instead of giving Him a throne to sit on they put Him on the cross. Next time He will come sitting on the throne of His glory to judge the living and the dead. Upon His first arrival angels escorted His entrance into the world. Upon His second coming angels will accompany Him again, “And all the angels with Him”.

St Paul more vividly describes the picture of His Second Coming, “For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with the cry of command, with the angels’ call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first” – (1 Thessalonians 4:16). Why will He be escorted by the angels?

PANIS' CORNER


With Pain and Love for Contemporary Man

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

This past week I was blessed to travel to Holy Protection Monastery in White Haven, Pennsylvania, not once, but twice. While perusing the bookstore, I was interested in many of the books there, but I did not purchase any of them because many of them are already a part of the collection at home.

I picked up the familiar blue bound book cover, this one entitled: With Pain and Love for Contemporary Man, Elder Paisios of Mount Athos, Spiritual Counsels. I have read a few other books like this one Read more...
