The Second Sunday of Lent is called “Sunday of the Palsied Man.” Men must repent for their sins, if they want to be forgiven. Christ cannot heal our soul if we do not repent for having offended God by our iniquities. The Church leads us in pious exercises of prayer and fasting because our weakness can be healed by them. 

CHURCH AND CEMETERY GROUNDS: Our grounds keeper, Jeremy, informed the parish that he will not be available to do the church grounds and the cemetery maintenance this year. If you know of any one that does this type of work and would be interested, please notify the office. Estimates are necessary from 3 different companies. 

ST. GREGORY PALAMAS

Today is the Second Sunday of Lent in which we commemorate St. Gregory Palamas the Archbishop of Thessalonika (his regular feast is November 14). He lived in the 14th century, became a monk and eventually the champion of Hesychasm. What is “hesychasm”? It comes from the Greek word hesychia, meaning silence and solitude. The Hesychasts were the monks and nuns who regularly and frequently practiced silence as part of their prayer life. Their practice centered on the Prayer of the Heart and especially the Jesus Prayer. Many of these hesychasts talked about their direct experience of God through seeing His uncreated Light.
