MARK YOUR CALENDAR: The weekend of November 12/13th Divine Liturgy will be celebrated on Saturday, November 12th at 4:00 PM only. There will not be a Divine Liturgy on Sunday, November 13th. Because of the His Beatitude, Kyr Sviatoslav Shevchuk visit to the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Philadelphia.

During our Liturgy we must pray, 1.With devotion; 2.With humility; 3.With confidence; 4.With resignation to the will of God; and 5.With perseverance.

In the Eastern Christian Churches, prayer is the key to metanoia, through which we become deified. Prayer is more than just attending liturgical celebrations and receiving the sacramental Mysteries, whether on occasion or as a constant practice. Prayer must begin in the home – the domestic Church – and must be carried out in practice in the outside world, including Church, the workplace, the school and every other area of life. Without prayer in the home, every other action, even “religious”, is futile. Prayer requires discipline – the choice to pray with the same, or greater, fervor that one exercises in fulfilling other duties. It also requires true and sincere effort, coming from the heart, and not just from rote recitation. Prayer is conversation with God, and through this conversing, the individual comes to mystically know God, through Jesus Christ, as his Lord.

 

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The week of October 15 – 22 is requested by Paul & Marion Rose & Nancy Palumbo in memory of the Rose & Fromel Parents.
