The Holy Fathers On The Feast of The Ascension

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Brethren and fathers, a feast of feasts, the Assumption of our Saviour Jesus Christ, is at our doors, and a great and supernatural mystery; for our nature is being taken up beyond heaven, as it written: By grace you have been saved; and he has raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, [Ephesians 2,5-6] who is at the right hand of God, [Romans 8,34] far above every principality and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but in that which to come. And he has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the Church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. [Ephesians 1,22-23] -St Ephrem - Catechesis 7

Do you see then to what height of glory human nature has been raised? Is it not from earth to heaven? Is it not from corruption to incorruption? How hard would not someone toil in order to become the intimate friend of a corruptible king here below? But we, although we were alienated and hostile in our intent by evil deeds, have not only been reconciled to God the Father, through our Lord Jesus Christ, but we have also soared aloft to sonship, and now our nature is worshipped in the heavens by every creature seen and unseen. St Ephrem - Catechesis 7 Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 147: The Biblical connotation of Stewardship (5/21/17)

Sunday, May 21, 2017

“Will man rob God? Yet you are robbing me. But you say, ‘How are we robbing thee?’ In your tithes and offerings.” (Malachi 3:8 RSV)

In 2010, the Diocesan Stewardship Commission after much research provided the Diocese with a true Biblical connotation of Stewardship which reads:.

“Orthodox Christian Stewardship is a Christ-centered lifestyle, which acknowledges accountability, reverence, and responsibility before God. Orthodox Christian Stewardship is a call to all of the faithful to share willingly and cheerfully the gifts that God has bestowed on them including sharing these gifts for God’s work in His Church.” Read more...
