Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost - he Parable of the Wedding Feast

Sunday, September 25, 2016

This parable, too, like that of the vineyard, alludes to the disobedience of the Jews. But as that one indicates Christ's death, so this one indicates the nuptial joy, that is, the resurrection. But this parable also shows them to be worse transgressors than the men in the preceding parable. For the husbandmen of the vineyard slew those who demanded fruits of them. But these men vented their murderous rage upon those who had invited them to a wedding. God is likened to a human king, for He does not appear as He is, but as it is fitting for Him to appear to us. When we die as humans, subject to human failings, God appears to us in human form; but when we walk about as gods, then God stands in the congregation of gods (Ps. 81:1). And when we live as wild beasts, then He, too, becomes for us a panther, and a bear, and a lion. He makes a wedding feast for His Son, joining Him to every soul that is beautiful. For the bridegroom is Christ and the bride is the Church and the soul. The servants that were sent out first are Moses and those with him, whom the Jews did not obey but provoked God in the wilderness for forty years Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 113: Being Contentious (9/25/16)

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Can a contentious person be a good steward in the church? Well, let's first look at the meaning of contentious. The Concise Oxford American Dictionary defines it as, “causing or likely to cause an argument, given to arguing or provoking an argument.” Such a person would seem therefore to have little knowledge of obedience or humility. St. Silouan The Anthonite instructs us, as related in the book, Remember Thy First Love, to be obedient without needless questioning. He goes on to say that obedience is an expression of love for our brothers which God has bonded us. Read more...
