2005 Saints Cyril & Methodius Feast Day Observance at Camp Nazareth

Saturday, April 16, 2005

On Tuesday, May 24th we give thanks to God for the mission of the Apostles of the Slavs to our forefathers. We remember the gifts of these great Greek missionaries to our peoples. Journeying far from Thessalonica into the old Moravian lands, the two sainted brothers brought the blessings of Orthodoxy and the legacies of Byzantine civilization to our pagan ancestors. So we remember them, and we ask that they continue to intercede for us in prayer - we, who are the successors of their first converts. We do not treat Saints Cyril and Methodios as antique objects of mere ethnic nostalgia. We treat them as the active saints they are, continuing their ministry to the Slavs and all Christians as they intercede in Paradise for our souls. Read more...

Archpastoral Letter on Great Lent 2005

Saturday, March 12, 2005

I greet you in the Meekness of the Bridegroom Christ, Who calls us, in the depth of our hearts, to follow Him during this Great Fast, and to not betray Him. In this annual season, we closely follow the events of the Passion of Our Lord, and we are frequently met by the disturbing picture of Judas the Betrayer. We are told, in the Gospel of St. Matthew (26.15), that he received thirty pieces of silver - about a half year's wages, almost $15,000 in today's funds - as payment for delivering his Lord into the hands of the enemy. When we hear this, we quickly protest, and we say "We would have done much better." Read more...

Archpastoral Statement on the Annual March for Life 2005

Sunday, January 23, 2005

In this season of the Nativity of Our Lord, we should think carefully about the fact that the Son of God was once a baby, a little child. This one fact is the most important determination of our opposition to abortion. He was an unborn Child, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary on the Day of the Annunciation. From the moment of that mysterious conception, that unborn Child was never less than a Person, never less than fully God and fully Man. When He was born, He did not become a Person at that point, because He already was.In the entirely of His mission in the Incarnation, the Son of God sanctified, and gave supreme legitimacy, to the whole range of human life. His work, proceeding out of the eternal Counsels of God the Father, and empowered by the dynamism of God the Spirit, renewed human nature. He entered humanity, and became the head of humanity, thus establishing a single, united human nature. Read more...
