Wisdom of the Holy Fathers
“God, Who is by nature good and dispassionate, loves all men equally as His handiwork. But He glorifies the virtuous man because in his will he is united to God. At the same time, in His goodness he is merciful to the sinner and by chastising him in this life brings him back to the path of virtue. Similarly, a man of good and dispassionate judgment also loves all men equally. He loves the virtuous man because of his nature and the probity of his intention; and he loves the sinner, too, because of his nature and because in his compassion he pities him for foolishly stumbling in darkness.”
†Saint Maximos the Confessor
"Whoever sees in himself the traces of hatred toward any man on account of any kind of sin is completely foreign to the love of God. For love toward God does not at all tolerate hatred for man."
†St. Maximos the Confessor
We are continuing with limited in person worship. The past few weeks we have been averaging about 30-40 people at Divine Liturgy. We are also streaming our services for those who are still at home. Next week (September 20th) we will invite parishioners alphabetically “A”- “M”. All are asked to follow all procedures. Please continue to pray for and support our parish as we face these challenging times.
On Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. during the month of October, Fr. Barnabas will be offering a book study. We will be reading and discussion the book, “The Life of Moses”, by St. Gregory of Nyssa. The book study will begin October 7th and meet online. All will be welcome to join us!
Fr. Barnabas will be hearing individual confessions with social distancing. Confessions will be available on Saturday afternoon from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. prior to Vespers. Please email Fr. Barnabas for an appointment. We will also be temporarily offering the Prayers in Preparation for Confession (General Confession prayers) prior to every Divine Liturgy until the restrictions are eased.
