Old Testament Reading: Isaiah 26:21-27:9

For behold, the LORD comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.

In that day the LORD with His severe sword, great and strong, will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; and He will slay the reptile that is in the sea.

In that day sing to her, "A vineyard of red wine!

I, the LORD, keep it, I water it every moment; lest any hurt it, I keep it night and day.

Fury is not in Me. who would set briers and thorns against Me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together.

Or let him take hold of My strength, that he may make peace with Me; and he shall make peace with Me."

Those who come He shall cause to take root in Jacob; Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.

Has He struck Israel as He struck those who struck him? Or has He been slain according to the slaughter of those who were slain by Him?

In measure, by sending it away, you contended with it. He removes it by His rough wind in the day of the east wind.

Therefore by this the iniquity of Jacob will be covered; and this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: when he makes all the stones of the altar like chalkstones that are beaten to dust, when wooden images and incense altars do not stand up.

Old Testament Reading: Genesis 9:18-10:1

Now the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham was the father of Canaan.

These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.

And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.

Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.

And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.

But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness.

So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him.

Then he said: "Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants he shall be to his brethren."

And he said: "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem, and may Canaan be his servant.

May God enlarge Japheth, and may he dwell in the tents of Shem; and may Canaan be his servant."

And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

So all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years; and he died.

Now this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood.

Old Testament Reading: Proverbs 12:23-13:9

A prudent man conceals knowledge, but the heart of fools proclaims foolishness.

The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slothful will be put to forced labor.

Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.

The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray.

The slothful man does not roast what he took in hunting, but diligence is man's precious possession.

In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.

A wise son heeds his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

A man shall eat well by the fruit of his mouth, but the soul of the unfaithful feeds on violence.

He who guards his mouth preserves his life, but he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.

the soul of a sluggard desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.

A righteous man hates lying, but a wicked man is loathsome and comes to shame.

Righteousness keeps him whose way is blameless, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.

There is one who makes himself rich, yet has nothing; and one who makes himself poor, yet has great riches.

The ransom of a man's life is his riches, but the poor does not hear rebuke.

The light of the righteous rejoices, but the lamp of the wicked will be put out.

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...
