Pentecost Thank You 
17/6/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Thank you to all who worked so hard to make our Pentecost just wonderful at St. Vladimirs this year. With Gods help and our efforts we were able to serve three liturgical cycles over the course of four days. The church was decorated beautifully. The choir sang magnificently. The food was plentiful and delicious. And that is just what our eyes saw and our ears heard. There were many more who worked diligently for the glory of God behind the scenes. To all we say: THANK YOU! And congratulations with the feast!

Let not one think, my fellow Christian, that only priests and monks need to pray without ceasing and not laymen No, no; every Christian without exception ought to dwell always in prayer.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
16/6/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Ephesians 5:9-19 & Matthew 18:10-20
Tuesday: Romans 1:1-7,13-17 & Matthew 4:25-5:12
Wednesday: Romans 1:18-27 & Matthew 5:20-26
Thursday: Romans 1:28-2:9 & Matthew 5:27-32
Friday: Romans 2:14-29 & Matthew 5:33-41
Saturday: Romans 1:7-12 & Matthew 5:42-48

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

By St. Justin (Popovich):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/bible_how.aspx

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:
