Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
18/1/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


You must never be afraid, if you are troubled by a flood of thoughts, that the enemy is too strong against you, that his attacks are never ending, that the war will last for your lifetime, and that you cannot avoid incessant downfalls of all kinds. Know that our enemies, with all their wiles, are in the hands of our divine Commander, our Lord Jesus Christ, for Whose honour and glory you are waging war. Since He himself leads you into battle, He will certainly not suffer your enemies to use violence against you and overcome you, if you do not yourself cross over to their side with your will. He will Himself fight for you and will deliver your enemies into your hands, when He wills and as He wills, as it is written: The Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee (Deut. Xxii, 14).

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
17/1/21, 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: I Corinthians 9:19-27 & Luke 3:1-18
Tuesday: Titus 2:11-14,3:4-7 & Matthew 3:13-17
Wednesday: Acts 19:1-8 & John 1:29-34
Thursday: I Peter 4:12-5:5 & Mark 12:38-44
Friday: II Peter 1:1-10 & Mark 13:1-8
Saturday: Ephesians 6:10-17 & Matthew 4:1-11

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