THE PURVEYOR The Purveyor of Divine Revelation When we say that Christianity is a way of life, we are referring to the fact that the Church is the purveyor of divine revelation from our Creator. This divine revelation infuses us with a transformational power that lifts us up, changes us, and makes us whole. We have a cure in this revelation, a promise of healing that which ails us. Infused as we are by the power of the Holy Spirit, we are lifted up from the quagmire of sin and despair, and taken up to the heights of the Heavenly Kingdom, where we join the cloud of witnesses that have gone on before us. In unity with the saints, we will participate forever in one Divine Liturgy, the heavenly banquet, continuing without end, unto the ages of ages.

Tomorrow is a day of celebration. Firstly our Holy Church celebrates the memory of St.Stylianos of Paphlagonia. St Stylianos was a monk, who lived a life of prayer and fasting. He is recognised as a pillar of asceticism. Moreover St. Stylianos is known as a protector of children. Many families ask the Saint to protect their children. Furthermore childless couples pray to the Saint to intercede that they might have children. Secondly, our local church here in Australia is celebrating the Name Day of its Spiritual Father, His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos. His Eminence has been the Spiritual Head of the Greek Orthodox Church here in Australia since 1975. May God grant His Eminence many years to continue to serve in the Lord's vineyard.

And wanted to say 2 more things: 1. white men. 2. It's the St. John Chrysostom's Divine Liturgy officiated most often @ Church.
From the holy Anaphora of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom:
St Nektarios the Wonderworker, Metropolitan of Pentapolis Nektarios the Wonderworker 9th Nov The divine Nektarios of Aegina, is one of the most widely known of Greek Orthodox Saints. He was born on October 1st, 1846 in Silyvria, in Asia Minor (now occupied by Turkey). At Holy Baptism he was given the name Anastasios. His parents were simple pious Christians. They brought him up in a manner pleasing to God, and did what their very limited means allowed for his formal education. Having completed elementary school in his hometown, he left for the great city of Constantinople at the age of 14. There, he found employment as a shop assistant and was able to earn a meager living. As well as regularly attending the Divine Liturgy, he also read the Holy Scriptures and Writings of the Holy Fathers of the Church on a daily basis. From his wide reading, the young Anastasios made a collection of wise sayings, which he fervently spread to the customers of his store by writing them on the paper used to wrap their goods. ...
Wow what an amazing day, we just had!! Brothers and sisters, today we celebrated the feast of St James, the brother of Jesus (from Joseph's earlier marriage). Along with that, his grace Bishop Seraphim, along with many clergy celebrated the "Liturgy of St James", which was the earliest liturgy used in our church. It was amazing, to see so many people take part in this service! Unlike the Divine Liturgy of "St John Chrysostom" that we have been accustomed to, it was amazing for us as a community, to see the actual offering of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, which is usually hidden behind the sanctuary. Here are somethings we should take away from today's service" 1.As this liturgy was the first one used by the early Christians, we remember their zeal and love for God. They would risk their lives and live their lives according to God. For that reason they were allowed see the offering take place (they were living a heavenly and saintly lifestyle). 2. As the people changed and that intrinsic zeal faded, ...

It seems like all of the services - weekday vespers, great vespers, orthros, hours etc., are not observed but in their place, an extra Divine Liturgy is held on Wednesday nights and Saturday nights. Can anyone tell me why this is? Where does it come from... is it a "latinization", as the Latin Church seems to emphasize only the Mass and no other services?

One of the holy celebrations of the Armenian Church is the Blessing of the Grapes which is conducted following the celebration of Divine Liturgy on the feast of the Assumption of the Holy Mother of God. It is also one of the Holy Traditions of the Universal Church. During the pre-Christian times "the feast of Roots and Fruit" constituted part and parcel of the religious rituals of almost all nations. On this day a special ceremony was conducted by the servants of the temple, during which the first fruit of the year was offered to the corresponding God embodying fertility as a sign of obedience, gratitude and fruitfulness for the coming year. Although the above-mentioned ceremony of offering the first fruit was also found in Armenian traditions, it was not distinguished as "the feast of Roots and Fruit". It was considered to be one of the feasts devoted to the Goddess Anahit as she embodied fertility and fruitfulness. After Armenia’s adoption of Christianity as the state religion in 301 AD, St. Gregory t ...
"My name is Catherine and I recently became an Orthodox Christian in October. I attended St. Joseph's Orthodox Church in Wheaton for many years with my husband. His father is the Archpriest there, even married us, and baptized my children. After many Sundays of Divine Liturgy, I knew that's where I belonged. It felt like family, and I was becoming more and more distant from my Catholic faith. I was raised in the Roman Catholic Church for many years. After the death of my grandparents, I felt it was my duty to do this for myself, my family, and practice my faith somewhere where they would have wanted. I converted after studying with my father in law. Many of these icons were my husband's and now they have become part of our family. I am who I am today because I'm an Orthodox Christian."

And Dennis experienced health and chemo complicatins s I had to miss 5 Weeks of Classes. I did this willingly out of AGAPE Love and Fidelity toward Dennis. It seemed like when ANY one of 4 Russian Orthodox Spiritual guides inquired re: my timeline the delay always had Dennis' name in it. While personally frustrsting, I knew that Dennis was committed to fight his lung cancer. I believe that in 4.5 years I couldn't go with him twice, once for my medical, and once for MHRC business. And it's no secret tha I was the on-site man w/hospice of the Twin Cities so that Dennis Eugene could live it out annd die in the DIGNITY of his own home. So now,here we are. ...

Tomorrow, June 11 at 6:45pm, we will celebrate the feast day for our patron Saint, the Apostle, St. Barnabas, with a Vesperal Divine Liturgy. The holy, glorious and all-laudable Apostle Barnabas was one of the Seventy Apostles and the companion of the Apostle Paul on some of his missionary voyages. He is referenced in Acts and in two of St. Paul’s epistles, Galatians and I Corinthians. Barnabas was born to a wealthy family in the tribe of Levi. Later becoming one of the Seventy Apostles, he studied with Saul (later St. Paul) under Gamaliel. From birth his given name was Joseph, but the Apostles called him Barnabas (“son of consolation”) because he was gifted at comforting people’s souls. It was St. Barnabas who introduced Paul to the other apostles after his conversion. St. Barnabas was likely the first to preach in Rome and Milan. He was martyred by the Jews on the island of Cyprus and was buried by St. Mark. Many receive healing at his grave, which place was unknown for hundreds of years until t ...

Sunday, June 1st Sunday's Sermon: Sunday of the Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council at Nicea Glory to Jesus Christ Today we prayerfully remember the 318 Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council held in Nicea in the year 325 A.D. With the victory of the Emperor Constantine at the battle of the Milvan Bridge in Rome and his subsequent conversion to Christianity, a new day of freedom began for the Church. However at the same time different heresies began to pose a new internal danger. The Holy Church, now freed from persecutions, was forced to defend itself from internal divisions. The Holy Fathers, sincerely concerned with the unity and integrity of Christ’s Church gathered in an Ecumenical Council at Nicea. Together they wanted to bear witness to and defend the true faith in the Trinity of Persons in God and the Divinity of Jesus Christ. They hoped that the unanimity of their position would once and for all end the heresy of Arius and his successors. The prayer of Christ, which we hear in today’s .. ...
Liturgy: Evidence of Things Unseen What does "liturgy" mean in an Orthodox context, and how does it relate to peacemaking? We cannot limit the Divine Liturgy and Holy Communion to mere ceremony. It must be placed in its fullest context We begin the process of receiving Communion with our mental and spiritual preparations -- in prayer, especially within the mystery of Penitence (or Confession). We take hope in the word of the Church that "God does not desire the death of a sinner, but rather that he turn away from his sins and live." It is expected, however, that we exercise our free will and "enter with faith, reverence and the fear of God." Fr. Alexander Schmemann reminds us: "everyone who enters the temple must examine himself: does he have in his heart a living faith and reverence for the presence of God...that we so often lose [having become] 'used to' the Church and the worship services? We have the guidance, too, of Matt: 5:23-4: "Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there rememb ...

MEMORY ETERNAL ! We received news yesterday that our good friend LESLEY BLUE has passed and is now with the Lord. Many kind words will be expressed but I would like to share a few moments between Leslie and myself. She asked me to mount a icon cross for her and I chose a historical cross from ancient Christian Russia. She was so thrilled with it. When she became ill she asked us for Holy water from our church. That we were able to do several times. Lastly, she so much wanted to attend a Divine Liturgy at St. Elizabeth Church. That wasn't accomplished because of her failing health. All of us are unique in many ways but LESLEY BLUE had that one of a kind personality that everyone had admired. David

Many passages in the Holy Bible and in our Divine Liturgy refer to the "fear" of the Lord, and to God's "wrath." Does this mean we should be afraid of God, the way people are afraid of snakes or spiders or being shot? Does it mean that God is scary and angry and just waiting to pounce and punish us for breaking God's rules? No. It means, instead that God is so powerful, so far beyond our comprehension and understanding--the creator of the universe and the salvation of the world--that we must be in awe of God's power and that we must have the utmost respect for God's dominion over the earth and all that is in it. In Psalm 90, verses 10-12 tell us, "The days of our life are seventy years, or perhaps eighty, if we are strong; even then their span is only toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away. Who considers the power of your anger? Your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you. So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart." We have to learn from God the right attitude ...
CHERUBIM Cherubim ( A class of angel ) Cherubim first appear in the Bible; guarding the garden of Eden against the return of Adam and Eve. God even instructed the Jews to depict them In Solomon's temple. They are the second group in the first tier of angels created by God. They are described as ministering to God around His Throne and Altar and are often fiery red in icons. Here name mean wisdom and they are often pictured with wings and many eyes. In the Divine Liturgy, the priest prays, we also thank you for this liturgy which you are pleased to accept from our hands, even though you are surrounded by thousands of Archangels and ten thousand of angels, by the Cherubim and Seraphim, six-winged many-eyed, soaring aloft, borne on their wings.

I was reminiscing this morning...about my Baba. She was a very gentle woman, and very wise. Her day had always time for prayer. She was raised in a Ukrainian Greek Orthodox home, and she passed this truth to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her "Wisdom" had opened my heart and my eyes to see the difference between wisdom and foolishness, or right from wrong. This brought me to thinking about what the "Word of a God" had to say about "Wisdom". I then found myself at Proverbs 1:2 (KJV). " To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding." This was my Baba, whom in my eyes had reached the highest spiritual perfection that was humanly possible. She was in harmony with the Highest. Then, I remembered in the 'Divine Liturgy' of the Ukrainian Orthodox Service, the Priest says, "Wisdom ~ Let Us Attend." Normally, I just glaze over it, or say it without any acknowledgement of it's importance, which is my foolishness. There must be a deeper meaning to this phrase. The truth ...

The Hymn of the Intercession of the Saints - from the Divine Liturgy of St. Basil. Coptic Orthodox Tewahdo church
Plan today for your child(ren) (boys and girls) to participate Holy Week as a guard of the tomb or a reader. On Holy Friday (April 18, 2014) the 2:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. time-frame is for the younger boys and they must be accompanied by an adult (their Father, Uncle, Grandfather, Godfather, etc.). They will each have their Altar Boy robes blessed, put their robes on and stand next to Christ's tomb with a lantern or candle. The time increments are flexible as this age group may be a bit restless. 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. is typically the older Altar Boys (4th grade to college) partnered with their fathers, brothers, cousins, friend, etc. 9:00 p.m. (or whenever Lamentation Vespers have ended) to the Divine Liturgy on Saturday morning (April 19, 2014), anyone is welcomed to sign up. The schedule will be adjusted according to the number of volunteer participants. For younger girls, young adults and women, they will have the opportunity to read Psalms and Scriptures during these same periods of time. Typically, a ...
MP3 Pacific Camerata - Divine Liturgy of the Armenian Apostolic Church: A New Version by George Kirazian,...
A PERSONAL LENTEN ANTHOLOGY Day 11 (Thursday of the 2nd Week): In a remote passage from a liturgical commentary attributed to the 15th century mystagogue, St. Symeon of Thessaloniki, called ON THE SACRED LITURGY, one is struck to read the expression, “God in the midst of gods.” The phrase refers to the completed prothesis rite (the preparatory service preceding the Divine Liturgy and the central theme of my PhD dissertation), but the notion can be extended to refer to the Church, in which God stands in the middle of … gods?! What may appear quite scandalous really should not be. Isn’t there only one God, after all? What is this notion of “other gods”? Yes, there is only one God by nature, the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. However, all of us who share God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1:26) have the capability to become gods ... by grace, by God’s benevolent gift. This honor, as Symeon elsewhere explains, is bestowed first to the Mother of God, the angels and saints, and fina ...
Quotes on the Divine Liturgy "Let no one out of laziness or continuous worldly occupations miss these holy Sunday gatherings, which God Himself handed down to us, lest he be justly abandoned by God... If you are detained and do not attend on one occasion, make up for it the next time, bringing yourself to Christ's Church. Otherwise you may remain uncured, suffering from unbelief in your soul because of deeds or words, and failing to approach Christ's surgery to receive... holy healing." St. Gregory Palamas If you only knew how great a blessing comes from the Divine Liturgy, then you would collect even the dust from the floor of the church to wash your faces with it. + St. Gabriel the Confessor
DID YOU KNOW THAT? In the Middle Ages, Ukraine was a key center of East Slavic culture, as epitomized by the powerful state of Kievan Rus'. The Golden Age of Kievan Rus' began with the reign of Vladimir the Great (980–1015), who turned Rus' toward Byzantine Christianity. His emissaries in Constantinople reported, "We no longer knew whether we were in heaven or on earth," describing a majestic Divine Liturgy in Hagia Sophia, "nor such beauty, and we know not how to tell of it." History reports that Vladimir himself was baptized in Korsum, a southern city in Crimea and his people (en masse) in the Dnieper River in Kiev in 988. Following its fragmentation in the 13th century, Ukraine was contested, ruled and divided by a variety of powers. A Cossack republic emerged and prospered during the 17th and 18th centuries. Catherine II of Russia officially abolished the autonomy of the Cossack state in 1764. Ukraine became part of the Russian Empire in the Russo-Turkish War (1768–1774), and later became a foundi ...

A big day for our monastery; Br. Andrew went to visit the staff and students at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, where he attended a beautiful Mass on Campus, took a tour, and spent lunchtime with staff members learning how the school works, and visiting with the Dominican students. Ms.Colleen Power, who is the Director of Student Services, and who had visited our monastery two weeks ago, was the most gracious hostess, who introduced him around, and the lovely young cook, Megan, enjoyed the fresh, dried bay leaves from the monastery Brother brought along as a thank- you for the wonderful lunch. He also had a gift basked with him filled with lovely little icons from the designs of our Abbot Damian, and our beautiful homemade candles for staff and students. It was truly a grace-filled day, with the result that the School invited us all to come down to celebrate a Divine Liturgy at the Priory of the Dominican Friars, as the school's chapel is too small to hold all of them. We are ...
