Offering "Thine own of Thine own..."

The Eucharist

St. John Chrysostom…

I observe many partaking of Christ’s Body lightly and yet it is not the Epiphany or Lent that makes it a fit time for approaching but it is the sincerity and purity of the soul. For as often as you do this, you proclaim the Lord’s death.

You proclaim the Lord’s death – with our Stewardship comes responsibility for this. Partaking in the Eucharist every week confirms our faith and prepares us for the Heavenly Kingdom. Through His Crucifixion, our sins were nailed to the Cross! As St. John reflects, partaking of His Body and Blood should not be done once or twice a year, but as often as possible with preparation and guidance from your parish Priest. Our entire Orthodox faith focuses on the Eucharist and from a Stewardship perspective, Christ provides His Body and His Blood while we approach Him asking for forgiveness and providing ourselves to Him. The Divine Liturgy and Holy Eucharist is necessary for our personal Salvation!
