True Meaning of Christmas
Just a week before Christmas I had a visitor. This is how it happened. I just finished the household chores for the night and was preparing to go to bed, when I heard a noise in the front of the house. I opened the door to the front room and to my surprise, Santa himself stepped out next to the fireplace.
”What are you doing?” I started to ask. The words choked up in my throat and I saw he had tears in his eyes. His usual jolly manner was gone. Gone was the eager, boisterous soul we all know. He then answered me with a simple statement . . .
”TEACH THE CHILDREN!” I was puzzled. What did he mean? He anticipated my question and with one quick movement brought forth a miniature toy bag from behind the tree. As I stood bewildered, Santa said, “Teach the children!
Teach them the old meaning of Christmas. The meaning that now-a-days Christmas has forgotten. “Santa then reached in his bag and pulled out a FIR TREE and placed it before the mantle. “Teach the children that the pure green color of the stately fir tree remains green all year round, depicting the everlasting hope of mankind, all the needles point heavenward, making it a symbol of man’s thoughts turning toward heaven.” 
He again reached into his bag and pulled out a brilliant STAR. “Teach the children that the star was the heavenly sign of promises long ago. God promised a Savior for the world, and the star was the sign of fulfillment of His promise.” 
He then reached into his bag and pulled out a CANDLE. “Teach the children that the candle symbolizes that Christ is the light of the world, and when we see this great light we are reminded of He who displaces the darkness.”
Once again he reached into his bag and removed a WREATH and placed it on the tree. “Teach the children that the wreath symbolizes the real nature of love. Real love never ceases. Love is one continuous round of affection.”
He then pulled from his bag an ORNAMENT of himself. “Teach the children that I, Santa Claus, symbolize the generosity and good will we feel during the month of December.
He then brought out a HOLLY LEAF. “Teach the children that the holly plant represents immortality. It represents the crown of thorns worn by our Savior. The red holly berries represent the blood shed by Him.
Next he pulled from his bag a GIFT and said, “Teach the children that God so loved the world that he gave his begotten son.” Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.

The Feast of St. Nicholas

The feast of St. Nicholas is celebrated on the 6th day of December.
Pope Nicholas, the first Pope bearing this name – erected a church in Rome in honor of St. Nicholas around the year 860. The Latin Church also celebrates the feast of St. Nicholas on the 6th of December. In France and Germany over two thousand churches are dedicated to his name; an additional four hundred such churches are found in England.
The cult of St. Nicholas came to our native Ukraine along with the Christian faith. There were numerous churches in honor of St. Nicholas. The Church of St. Nicholas in Lviv, which dates back to the thirteenth century, is one of the oldest. Our Ukrainian Encyclopedia says the following about the veneration of St. Nicholas among our people: “In a great number of oral traditions, Nicholas protects people from disasters caused by the elements; mostly he protects those who sail on the sea. Hence, the Black Sea fishermen, when going out to fish, take the icon of St. Nicholas with them. Songs about St. Nicholas are among the earliest examples of Ukrainian poetry and include such popular ones as “O Whoever, whoever loves St. Nicholas…”
In our Church, St. Nicholas not only has two separate feasts in his honor, but ever Thursday is also dedicated to his name.
We do not know very much about the life of St. Nicholas, and what we do know is somewhat embellished with various legends. We know for certain that St. Nicholas was a bishop for many years in Myra, a city in the province of Lycia, in Asia Minor; that he took part in the First Ecumenical Council in 325 at Nicea; and that he died around the year 345. His whole life was dedicated to works of mercy, both corporal and spiritual. Even during his lifetime he was called the father of orphans, widows, and the poor. After his death, the Lord glorified him with the gift or working miracles, for which he received the title “Great Wonder-worker”.
St. Nicholas saw Jesus Christ in his neighbor and that is why he quickly and generously hastened to help him in every need. The Holy Gospel says that at the Last Judgment the Lord will judge us by our works of love and mercy. Christ assures us of this when He says: “Amen I say to you, as long as you did it for one of these, the least of My brethren, you did it for Me”.
Nicholas’ tomb in Myra became a popular place of pilgrimage. Because of the many wars and attacks in the region by Muslims, some Christians were concerned that access to the tomb might become difficult. For both the religious and commercial advantages of a major pilgrimage site, the Italian cities of Venice and Bari vied to get the Nicholas relics. http://www.stnicholascenter.org/pages/who-is-st-nicholas/

The Feast Day of
SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
NOVEMBER 8TH

Saint Michael, captain of all Angels

Saint Michael (Michael means ‘Who is like God’) is the leader of the heavenly hosts and the greatest adversary of Satan. Under his leadership the faithful Angels defeated Lucifer, the chieftain of the rebellious angels. This feast was instituted at the time of Emperor Constantine the Great in the fourth century.
Saint Michael became patron of Kiev. Capital of Ukraine, since the early days of Christianity in our country.
The Church honors all the angelic choirs on the same day, when it pays a tribute of honor to their leader, St. Michael.

“You the Marshals of the heavenly armies,
we implore, though being unworthy,
that with your prayers you fortify us,
under the shelter of your wings, 
of your spiritual glory,
guarding us as we fall before you,
and incessantly cry:
Redeem from dangers all of us, 
as the Commanders of the heavenly Powers.”

Saint Michael Archangel, defend us in battle,
be our protection against the wickedness
and snares of the devil;
may God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God, cast into hell
Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

St. Michael the Archangel

Our Liturgical Year is like a beautiful mosaic made up of the feasts of Our Lord, the Mother of God, and an immense throng of Martyrs and Saints. The center of this splendid mosaic is our Lord Jesus Christ, as God and as Man. Day and night, His Pilgrim Church on earth and in heaven, the Church in glory, that is – the very great choir of Angels and Saints – sing to Him eternal praises. The holy Angels are God’s everlasting choir of glory; they are the messengers and servants of God. The Angels
also fulfill a great role in the redemption of the human race.
Holy Church, conscious of the great significance of the Angels for the glory of God and our salvation, has provided a special place for the veneration of the Angels in the mosaic of the Liturgical Year. Here, first place is given to the feast of the Synaxis of St. Michael the Archangel and the rest of the Angelic Powers.
Before the Lord God created man, He created the holy Angels who are invisible, immortal, perfect beings and pure spirits, possessing a keen intellect and free will. Their number is immeasurably great, as we know from the vision granted to the prophet Daniel who saw the throne of God where “thousands upon thousands were ministering Him, and myriads upon myriads attended Him.”
The Lord God, after creating the Angels, put them to a test and a great number of the Angels’ rebelled against Him. St. John the Theologian speaks of a war in heaven (Rev. 12,7). At the head of the good Angels stood the Archangel Michael who overcame Lucifer and his angels. Hence, in the veneration of the Angels, the holy Church gives first place to St. Michael.
The angels whose task is to protect men, we call guardian Angels. The Fathers of the Church teach that every person has his own guardian Angel. In the Petition of the Divine Liturgy we beg God for a guardian Angel: “For an angel of peace, a faithful guide, a guardian of our souls and bodies, let us beseech the Lord.” Using the Holy Scripture as their foundation, the Holy Fathers teach that not only every person, but also every community, Church, and nation has its own guardian Angel.
The feast of the Archangel Michael and the holy Angels indicates to us the significant role the Angels play in our salvation. This feast also reminds us of our duties towards the Angels, especially toward our Guardian Angel. Throughout our entire life, at every moment and in every place our guardian angel watches over us, protects us, inspires us with good thoughts, warns us against sin, and intercedes for us before God. Our Guardian Angel is our guide to heaven, our helper against temptation, and our companion at the hour of death. He is the constant witness of our thoughts, our words, and our deeds. Only in heaven will we one day see how much we owe to our Guardian Angel.

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary Light is requested to burn the week of Nov. 4-11 by Parents Ronald & Rosemarie Kachinko in memory of daughter Sandra Elko.

FLOWERS: Our thanks to Mary Ann Kachinko & Family for their donation of 1 bouquet this week in memory of Bernard Kachinko.
