The question from a parishioner; “Father, why are there bells on the incenser?” 
The bells represent the apostles calling the people to Jesus Christ.  There should be 12 bells with the ringer removed from one, this one represents Judas who lost his voice when he betrayed Jesus and fell silent.  We are supposed to be standing when the King, Jesus Christ enters and because the holy doors are supposed to be closed for much of the liturgy, the people would not necessarily be able to see what is happening at the altar, so when the people hear the bells they know it is time to stand.
In addition, some people have commented, “Father, we have seen anyone swing the incenser like you do.”  What the priest does before incensing the church is first stand in front of the altar and make a sign of the cross with the incenser.  Some priests do it Roman Catholic style with their hand while holding the incenser, I swing the incenser so that the incenser boat, with the incense, makes the sign of the cross, first the vertical pole swinging up and then the cross beam and now it is time to incense the entire church.

God’s Blessingsand Good Health for all Parishioners

The Feast of the Patronage of the Holy Mother of God
October 1st

The continuous reading of the Gospel of the Holy Evangelist Luke begins on the Monday following the Sunday after the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.  The four Gospels are all read  in their entirety in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Year and the reading of each begins with a great Feast.  The Gospel of Saint John the Theologian begins with the Feast of Feasts, the Pascha of our Lord and is read until Pentecost.  The Gospel of St. Matthew begins with the Feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, and is read until the Feast of the Holy Cross.  The first Sundays in the Matthew cycle and in the Lucan cycle are of the call of the apostles Peter and Andrew, James and John, indicating that these Gospels also call us to follow after Jesus our Lord.  The Gospel of St. Mark is read during the Holy and Great Fast, but since the Divine Liturgy is celebrated only Saturday and Sunday, the remaining sections are read in the last six weeks of the Matthean and Lucan cycles.  This is why, no matter where we are in the cycle of Sundays after Pentecost, we begin the course reading the Gospel of St. Luke on Monday that comes before the second Sunday after the Exaltation of the Cross, this year it is September 17.  This year there is no “Lucan Jump” since the Sunday after the Exaltation of the Cross is also the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost, and there is no interruption in the readings.  The Greek Church, however, begins to number the Sundays by “Weeks after the Holy Cross.”  Of course, a historical factor in this was that September 23, (the Birthday of Augustus, very important when the imperial ideals were still living),  was the beginning of the New Year, so that reading of a new Gospel seemed appropriate at this time.  Later the New Year was moved to September 1.

Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima
O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most holy Rosary, you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message. We implore you; inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary. By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption that are recalled therein may we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask, through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.
Amen.

Please Bless All who read this prayer dear Father

STATISTICS DON’T LIE.!!! 
How to stay safe in the World today!                 
Where IS the Safest Place? 

1.. Avoid riding in automobiles because
they are responsible for 20% of all fatal accidents. 
2.. Do not stay home because 17% of all accidents occur in the home. 
3… Avoid walking on streets or sidewalks because 14% of all accidents occur to pedestrians.  
4. Avoid traveling by air, rail, or water because 16% of all accidents involve these forms of transportation. 
5. Of the remaining 33%, 32% of all deaths occur in Hospitals. 
So, above all else, avoid hospitals. 

 But. … 
You will be pleased to learn that only .001% 
of all deaths occur in worship services in church, 
and these are usually related to previous physical 
disorders. Therefore, logic tells us that the safest 
 place for you to be at any given point in time is at 
 CHURCH! 
And . .. . Bible study is safe too! 
The percentage of deaths 
During Bible study is even less. 
So, 
Attend church, 
And read your Bible 
IT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE!
