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.

Latest Episode (7/30/15)
The First Among Sinners As we learn more about the Faith, we learn about right and wrong. And sin. 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 53: Stewards and the Poor III

Sunday, August 02, 2015

“For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you will, you can do good to them…” (Mark 14:7 RSV) In some far Eastern cultures, the lowest poor of society are called “untouchables.” They are the lowest of the orders of society. The system that calls such lowly poor “untouchable” is often called the “caste” system. If one is an “untouchable” one is in the lowest “caste” – hence comes our English word “outcast.” Our Creator did not create human beings with any distinction of rank. In God’s sight, human beings are simply human beings. All are striving to become once again as God created them – in full union with God, walking with God in His garden at the cool of the day. In the day of final judgment, God will not look at rank, caste, riches, or poverty. God will judge by what each person is in purity and in love for His Son whom he sent for the salvation of the world. Read more...
