CELEBRATING PASCHA
 

The Fourth Sunday of Pascha: The Paralytic

Sunday, May 22, 2016

It was a feast of the Jews, Pentecost, I believe. The Lord went up on this feast for two reasons: first, so as not to appear by His absence to be opposed to the law, but to be seen celebrating together with the others. Secondly, He went up to the feast to draw more people to Himself by His signs and teaching, especially from among the guileless multitude. For the farmers and craftsmen, who on other days would be busy at their work, always gathered together on the feast days. The pool was called Sheep's Pool, because the sheep intended for sacrifice were gathered there, and after they were slain their entrails were washed in its water. It was the common belief that simply from the washing of the sacrificial entrails the water took on a divine power, and because of this, the angel would come to it at certain times to work a miracle. Here we see divine providence guiding the Jews from the beginning towards faith in Christ, preordaining for them this miracle of the pool. Read more...

STEWARDSHIP



On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 96: Children and the Stewardship Life II

Sunday, May 22, 2016

It is an unfortunate situation that most people find themselves completely satisfied with enough to eat and drink, to wear, and to be entertained. Thus such people find that they must indulge in this pleasure and that, and accustom themselves to living up to (and often beyond) their income. The Christian steward, who sees all he or she has as a loan from God to be repaid, also sees that God has a higher goal for us than simple self-satisfaction.

Our children are very good watchers and listeners. They learn much more about how they will live in the future on their own from observing their parents than from a book or lecture. It is the duty of all Christians to properly use our time and money. Read more...
