Sunday of The Prodigal Son

Thursday, February 09, 2017

In all scripture you will not find a more striking account of God’s understanding and love than in this morning’s reading, recorded for us by St. Luke, of the story of the forgiving father. It is unfortunate that over the centuries this parable has come to be known as that of the Prodigal Son, because it is that father who is the true centerpiece of the story, flanked as he is on either side by his two very different sons.

Turning to the younger of the two sons, we see that his behavior is offensive in a variety of ways. He asks to receive his inheritance ahead of his older brother to whom deference and respect should have been shown. Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 133: Desire (2/12/17)

Sunday, February 12, 2017

““For the desire of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you would.” (Galatians 5: 17 RSV)

The Holy Fathers teach us that there are two types of desire, divine and carnal/sensual. When God created man, He placed within man a seed of divine desire. The desire to be with God, to commune with Him. Man’s joy came from being with God, and there was that desire always to be with Him. God made us in His image, to be like Him, but we have to work at being in His likeness. Adam did not develop fully into the likeness of God.

Adam was deceived by Satan to believe that joy could come from the desire of sensual things, of material things. Read more...
