St. John

Fourth Sunday of Easter

“I am the door; If anyone enters by me he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. It is so good to still be here with you on this 4th Sunday of Easter. Our struggle, and ordeal with public health, and this virus goes on. We are all still here,

Second Sunday of Easter

It is so good to be here with you all, in these most bizarre times. As Orthodox Christians we have real and profound reason to be hopeful, even in the face of horrific tragedy. We have lost many loved ones, and may lose a good many more. Our faith is not some “pie in the sky when you die by and by”, no it is far more interesting than that.

Maundy Thursday

Tonight we celebrate the events of the Last Supper in the upper room, where Christ gave his disciples instructions to be carried out in his name. The name Maundy came from the Latin word Maundatum, meaning commandment. The commandment we focus on today is the one Christ gave, “do this in remembrance of me.” St. Justin Martyr, who was born in about 100 AD, was one of the first Apologists

Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday, but you will notice in your bulletin it has two names. “The Sunday of the Passion: Palm Sunday” This because there are two distinct parts to our celebration today. The first being a commemoration of the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. We read from the Gospel according to St. Matthew about this event. “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find an ass

The Woman at the Well

The adult human body contains about 60% water. Water is something we take for granted here. We turn the little handle and the water flows. In many parts of the world, water is a precious resource that is not easy to come by. Water is life. When I was in Malawi, I saw women carrying buckets of water on their heads. Each day they walk to the local well, fill

Transfiguration Sunday

“Six days after Peter had acknowledged Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the Living God, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves.” The Gospel according to St. Matthew was written from the perspective of a Jew, who happened to be a Tax Collector, from Capernaum. Whenever Jesus wanted to teach his disciples, he went up on

The Beatitudes

“God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong,” from St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians (1:27) Jesus had a way of confounding the people of the world when he walked among us, and he still confounds them today. The Beatitudes, as they are known, has been called the little catechesis, or teaching of

Fishers of Men

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” From the Gospel according to St. Matthew. At the beginning of his ministry, as recorded by St. Matthew, Jesus went to Caper′na-um by the sea of Galilee. It was there that he found Andrew and Simon Peter, and the rest of the twelve apostles. He began to teach them about repentance and the

The Baptism of our Lord Jesus Christ

“I will keep my love for him forever, and my covenant will stand firm for him.” In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. I tell you not only will the covenant stand firm for him, it only stands at all because of him. Isaiah sees this well from his own vantage point in history some 7 centuries before God’s Christ is made

In the beginning was the Word

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” from the Gospel according to St John. This section of the Gospel according to St. John is know as the prologue. Many scholars have read, studied, analyzed, and regurgitated this section in a variety of ways. Some think it’s a bit of a hymn, others a poem, still others think it is elaborate
