Monk Moses: The Mother of God's Fifteen Days of August Has Arrived

Saturday, August 01, 2015

Saint Gregory Palamas, Archbishop of Thessaloniki, a great theologian, saw the Panagia in a vision and wrote: With what human words can we describe your God-illumined beauty, Virgin Mother of God? Your grace is impossible to be identified with either words or thoughts. Only her divine vision gives brilliance, joy and exultation. The beauty of her face comes from her beautiful soul and pure heart. It's as light poured from the inside out giving it unparalleled decency, all-good beauty. The beauty, coming from her purity, modesty and humility, caught the eye of God on her and made her the Mother of God and of the people. The God-bearer Saint Nikodemos the Hagiorite urges everyone to embrace the mindset of the holy Mother of God. Let us spruce our hearts appropriately in order for the virtues of the Panagia to reside within us, so that by seeing them on us we will receive rich spiritual graces and heavenly goods. The Mother of God's fifteen days of August has arrived. The year so far has given us death in Japan, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Cyprus, Norway and elsewhere. Everyday we receive calls and letters for us to remember in prayer the critically ill patients and the dead from heart problems, cancer, and from various incurable diseases, and to light a candle to the All-Holy Virgin.

If we're not careful, that knowledge can lead us to judge others rather than repent of our own faults. How do we stay focused on our sins? And what's the best way to approach people about their faults? Watch to find out!

STEWARDSHIP



On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 52: Stewards and the Poor II

Sunday, July 26, 2015

“For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you will, you can do good to them…” (Mark 14:7 RSV) In Western medieval society, the local church, often a monastery church, was the place for the poor to attend services. The lords and their vassals usually had their own priests who served the religious needs within the lord’s house, without ever having to go “outside” and even see the poor peasantry. Given my experience that Easter morning, it was obvious that the poor were made to feel that it is too costly a thing for them to attend the service of God. Such a service as I saw that Easter Day was more of an indulgence of pride and love of show than an invitation to raise praise and song to the Son of God risen from the dead for the salvation of all mankind. Were it not for the fact that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ revealed his love for the poor and lowly who are contrite in heart, Read more...
