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

Sunday, July 24, 2016

"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...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 104: Spiritual Hospital (7/24/16)

Sunday, July 24, 2016

The Church is a spiritual hospital. Within the church, we find the "medicine" that will heal our spiritual diseases, our sins and passions. However, the purpose of the "treatment" we receive in the church is not to make us better adjusted to society. On the contrary, Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos in his book, Orthodox Psychotherapy states that “the aim of therapeutic treatment is not to make people sociable and to be an anthropocentric (man-centered/self-centered) exercise, but to guide them to communion with God, and for this vision of God not to be a fire which will consume them but a light which will illuminate them.”

Therefore, the basic aim of Orthodox therapeutic treatment is to attain communion with God.
