The Fifth Sunday of Pascha: The Samaritan Woman

Friday, May 15, 2020

When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John, (though Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples,) He left Judea, and departed again into Galilee. And it was necessary that He go through Samaria. When God, the Lover of man, became flesh for our sake, the purpose of His every action was to bring benefit to us. So it is here: when He perceived that the Pharisees had heard of His fame and knew that this would incite them to envy, He departed into Galilee, thereby teaching us two things. First, that we should spare our enemies and try every means not to give cause for offense or envy; and second, that we should not throw ourselves into temptation foolishly and needlessly, but instead withdraw for a while until the anger of our enemies has abated.

SPF50 MINISTRY
Praying together and reading Scripture together are pillars of a Christ- centered Orthodox Christian family. While families may desire to have these activities in their home, they may not be sure how to start. SPF50 intends to help our families bridge that gap. SPF stands for “Scripture, Prayer, Family” and is designed to equip families to read the Scriptures and pray together at home.

This will be an ongoing parish-centered program to help families have quality time with our Lord and with one another, both of which are hard to come by. 

SPF50 will start at the beginning of Great Lent 2020 with the Gospel of Mark.
Copies of SPF50’s first publication are available in each parish and on the SPF50 Web Page

NEW!!! - SPF50's second publication
 

Weekly Message

Here is this week's offering from SPF50.  A brief message to encourage us in our life of faith at home with our families.  Each week SPF50 will bring us a new audio or video recording to help us.  This week's offering is for those reading The Gospel of Mark Chapters 5 and 6.
