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

Saturday, July 04, 2015

"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...

Latest Episode (7/2/15):  Memory Eternal  
When people pass away, we pray that their memory will be eternal. We're not simply asking God to think about them: we're asking Him to save them (and us) and bring us all into His Kingdom. It's the Church's answer to the loneliness and emptiness of death.

STEWARDSHIP



On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 48: Do Not Be Afraid

Sunday, June 28, 2015

“…perfect love casts out fear.” (1 John 4:18 RSV) Many people are full of doubts. They are unsure of the future. They are unsure of their relationships. They are unsure even about God and salvation. This often puts such people into a position of fear. It is especially the fear of the future that so often takes away any joy in the present. When we fear for our children, our world, our health, our world – we fear things we perhaps ought to fear. But, more often than not we fear things that need not be feared. Take, for example, one of the greatest stewards in the Scriptures. St. Mark tells the story of Jesus watching people in the temple area. Some are placing large sums of money into the temple treasury. Jesus points out to His disciples the poor widow and her fearless action. She had deep trust and virtually no fear: she placed two copper coins into the treasury as her gift. Read more...
