Paschal Sermon of St. John Chrysostom - 04/11/15

If any man be devout and loves God, let him enjoy this fair and radiant triumphal feast. If any man be a wise servant, let him rejoicing enter into the joy of his Lord. If any have labored long in fasting, let him now receive his recompense. If any have wrought from the first hour, let him today receive his just reward. If any have come at the third hour, let him with thankfulness keep the feast. If any have arrived at the sixth hour, let him have no misgivings; because he shall in nowise be deprived therefore.

Якщо хто благочестивий і любить Бога, нехай насолодиться цим світлим торжеством. Якщо хто раб благорозумний, нехай увійде, радіючи, у радість Господа свого. Якщо хто потрудився, постячися, нехай прийме нині винагороду. Якщо хто від першої години працював, нехай отримає нині справедливу заплату. Якщо хто після третьої години прийде, дякуючи, нехай святкує. Якщо хто після шостої години з'явився, нехай не засумнівається, тому що нічого не втратив.

Lessons for the “Righteous” from St. Mary of Egypt and Abba Zosima - 03/25/15

Organized religion is often the target of heavy criticism and censure in our modern world. In my own lifetime, I have seen a world where clergy and religious organizations have gone from being acceptable and respected parts of society to being treated on a spectrum that ranges from irrelevant to unspeakable and perhaps even contemptible or evil. For example, if one was to open the internal website of one’s place of employment, one might see the following prohibition on topics which one may not post or blog.


This is a difficult Sunday for Orthodox Christians. Not as difficult as St. Mary of Egypt, perhaps, but nonetheless a day that convicts us and confronts us with our Lenten practice. Let’s face it: many Orthodox are exceedingly lax in Lenten disciplines. Laziness may be the heart of the problem, and we should not let ourselves off the hook too easily, but it is not the sole reason.
