Joint Message of Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew on the World Day of Prayer for Creation - 09/01/17

The story of creation presents us with a panoramic view of the world. Scripture reveals that, “in the beginning”, God intended humanity to cooperate in the preservation and protection of the natural environment. At first, as we read in Genesis, “no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up – for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground” (2:5). The earth was entrusted to us as a sublime gift and legacy, for which all of us share responsibility until, “in the end”, all things in heaven and on earth will be restored in Christ (cf. Eph 1:10). Our human dignity and welfare are deeply connected to our care for the whole of creation.

Those gathered basked in the glow of His Beatitude as he spoke of his early years, talking fondly of Pittsburgh, of his family and church family, and happily expounding upon the joys of All Saints Camp.  Everyone had smiled and rejoiced along with His Beatitude on such a momentous anniversary. However, all too soon their tears of joy, were replaced with tears of sorrow, as Metropolitan Constantine fell asleep in the Lord only a day later.

St. Sophia Seminary Holds Its Commencement Exercises - 05/22/17

On Saturday, May 20th, St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary held its commencement celebration at St. Andrew Memorial Church in South Bound Brook, N.J.  The festivities began with the procession of His Eminence Metropolitan Antony, His Eminence Archbishop Daniel, members of the faculty, and seminarians.  After the hierarchs had come in and venerated the altar, Rev. Fr. Vasyl Pasakas, the Assistant Dean of Men, and Rev. Fr. Vasyl Shak, Assistant Professor of Church History, led us in the Moleben prayers.  This was a wonderful reminder that without God we can do nothing (St. John 15:5) and that it is God's desire to bless us and fill our needs (St. Matthew 7:7-9) and helped us better appreciate the gift the Lord has sent us in the form of committed seminarians who are willing to sacrifice themselves to serve God and neighbor.
