The Myrrh Bearing Women

Myrrhbearing_Women

We pray that you had a blessed Great Lent and a glorious Pascha celebration with your families and friends.

Reflecting on the Scriptures from Bright Tuesday, we read that “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” Acts 2:21
Prayer is a very beneficial way to ask God to help and guide us during any difficult times that we face. We also should remember to thank God for all that he provides as well. St. John Chrysostom’s homily for Bright Tuesday also reflects on the fact that all of those who are faithful and call on God will be saved whether they are a priest, a slave, a poor person, an individual who works two jobs, a wealthy executive or someone that is homeless….. we will be judged according to our deeds, the work that we do and our words. It’s not who we are as much as it is what we do and how we act. This is why we are asked and guided in the Scriptures to give freely of our Time, Talents and Treasures.

As we prepare for Christ’s Ascension during the next 40 days, greet all of the Orthodox faithful with “Christ Is Risen” and please remember to help our parish any way that you can. With the summer months (and vacations) right around the corner, this is typically a time where the parish has it’s greatest need. Please ask any of the priests, the Stewardship committee or executive board members how you can help.
