Diocesan Youth Take On Hurricane Relief Outreach Project (Updated 10/5/19)

Thursday, October 03, 2019

JOHNSTOWN, PA [National ACRY] --- With the blessing and enthusiastic support of His Eminence, Metropolitan Gregory of Nyssa, the National Junior and Senior ACRY has taken on the coordination of a Diocesan-wide outreach initiative to assist the International Orthodox Christian Charities in responding to the catastrophic devastation wrought by Hurricane Dorian which brought destruction to the Bahama’s and the south eastern coast of the United States. Hurricane Dorian caused over 7 billion dollars in damage and left thousands homeless.

In times of natural disaster, the IOCC has boots on the ground distributing hygiene kits which  provide basic hygiene supplies that more than likely were washed away in the torrential downpour. Due to the multiple, intense storms that have hit during the peak of this hurricane season, IOCC’s supply of hygiene kits have been depleted. Read more...

The Miraculous Catch of Fish

Friday, October 04, 2019

The Lord flees glory, which all the more pursues Him. When the crowd pressed against Him, He entered the boat, so that from the boat He could teach those standing on the shore, and everyone would be in front of Him, rather than some coming towards Him from behind. And when He had finished teaching the people, He did not leave the owner of the boat without payment, but gave him a two-fold benefit: He bestowed on him an abundance of fish, and He made him His disciple. Marvel at how wisely the Lord arranges our salvation, drawing to Himself each one by means of the things that are his own and with which he is familiar As He had attracted the Magi with a star, so now He draws the fishermen by means of fish. Behold the gentleness of Christ, how He does not command, but requests, that Peter put out from land. Behold also the obedience of Peter, how he welcomes into his boat a man whom he did not know, and obeys Him in everything. When the Lord tells him to launch out into the deep, Peter does not become exasperated and leave Him, nor does he reply, "I have toiled the whole night and gained nothing, and now I should obey you and do it all again?" ?" Peter said nothing like this, but instead, At Thy word I will let down the net. Such was the warmth of his trust even before he had faith. And he caught so great a number of fish that he was not able to haul them in, and he beckoned to his companions in the other boat. He calls them with a signal, because his astonishment at the catch was so great that he could not even speak. Read more...
