SPIRITUAL READING
 

Holy Martyr Philoumenos of Jacobs Well

Sunday, November 22, 2020

The life of the New Martyr Father Philoumenos is an example to us that martyrdom for Christ is not of the past from Roman or Communist times, but is a reality even in our own day. Father Philoumenos, an Orthodox monk, was brutally martyred in 1979 in Israel. His life is a reminder to us of the danger of being so devoted to our Faith, that we use it as a club or a weapon to attack those who disagree with us. While Muslim fundamentalists receive most of the press regarding this, even Orthodox Christians can use their love of the calendar, canons, or concern with being correct to attack and antagonize those who do not measure up to their standards.

For priests, Father Philoumenos is an example of continuing in prayer regardless if there is a congregation to join us. While we priests are tempted to omit some of the services since “no one will attend” he faithfully conducted the cycle of Vespers, Matins and Hours in remote locations with no congregation in attendance.

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. 

A digital copy of SPF50's  Fourth publication is now available on the SPF50 Web Page.
 
 

Weekly Message

Each week of the SPF50 Ministry, a brief reflection will be offered to encourage us in our life of faith at home with our families.  These reflections will be based on the Gospel readings assigned for the week.  You can access the weekly reflections below and find archived copies of previous reflections on the SPF50 Web Page.
