The beginning of the Dormition Fast – an opportunity for alms

0815dormition0001As we begin the Dormition Fast (Old Calendar) let us think of the many ways we can show our love for God and His Mother, by providing alms in light of being excessive. Consider this reflection…

Yet the challenge of our faith is that we become so indifferent to material possessions that nothing of this kind can concern us. Of course while we remain on this earth, we must have plates on which to serve our food, roof above our heads to keep us dry, crops growing in the fields to feed us and some basic pieces of furniture in our homes. But if we work hard day by day to the best of our abilities, we can be sure that God will provide what we need. And if something is broke, lost or stolen, God will decide if and when to replace it.
