Epistle Reading: 2 Corinthians 11:21-12:9

To our shame, I say that we were too weak for that! But in whatever anyone is bold; I speak foolishly; I am bold also.

Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.

Are they ministers of Christ?; I speak as a fool; I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.

From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one.

Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep;

in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness;

besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches.

Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation?

If I must boast, I will boast in the things which concern my infirmity.

The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.

In Damascus the governor, under Aretas the king, was guarding the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desiring to apprehend me;

but I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped from his hands.

It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord:

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago; whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows; such a one was caught up to the third heaven.

And I know such a man; whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows;

how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

Of such a one I will boast; yet of myself I will not boast, except in my infirmities.

For though I might desire to boast, I will not be a fool; for I will speak the truth. But I forbear, lest anyone should think of me above what he sees me to be or hears from me.

And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.

Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me.

And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Gospel Reading: Matthew 16:13-19

When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?"

So they said, "Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."

He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"

And Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar- Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

"And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

"And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

Our Holy Father Moses of the Carpathians

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Our Holy Father Moses of the Carpathians, also known as St. Moses the Hungarian or St. Moses Uhrin was a native of the Carpathian Mountain region of Eastern Europe in the 9th century A.D. He was the brother of St. Ephraim of New Torzhok and St. George and together they were in the service of the Holy Prince Boris, a son of the Holy Prince Vladimir. Prince Boris, knowing that his brother Sviatopolk was seeking to kill him in order to gain power, refused to bring violence against his own brother and was brutally murdered while was chanting Psalms. St. Boris, with his brother St. Gleb, were the first saints canonized by the Orthodox Church of Russia. After Boris’ murder, Moses fled and hid in Kiev with Predislava, sister of Prince Yaroslav. In 1018, the Polish king Boleslav conquered Kiev and St. Moses and his companions were taken away to Poland in chains.

St. Moses was said to be tall, muscular and handsome and he attracted the attention and lustful desire of a certain wealthy Polish widow. She bought Moses from Boleslav and took him to her estate with the intention of seducing him and marrying him. Read more...
