Much will be written by many with far more profound insights into the historical, spiritual and theological meaning of the Council &ndash; as well as the implications of the participation of the Churches and, more notably, the non-participation of others, for whatever reasons. From my perspective, what is so encouraging is the refreshing sight of the Fathers of the Church as they step up &ndash; prayerfully, visibly and publically &ndash; to act as the stewards of the Lord&rsquo;s Church in our age. Quietly, the prayer of many Orthodox Christians was that, through the Council, the Lord would pour forth a wave of spiritual enthusiasm, renewed insight and where necessary, needed change, to the Orthodox Church&rsquo;s life and witness in the world today.</p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA https://stewardshipnowblog.wordpress.com Introducing New “Orthodoxy in America” App - Available at No Charge http://uocofusa.org/news_160714_1.html Thu, 14 Jul 2016 00:00:00 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://uocofusa.org/display_image.php?ext=png&relativeimage=images/events/2016/7-14-2016-Orthodoxy-in-America/Orthodoxy-in-America.png&archive=0&final_h=47&final_w=90&percent=100"><p style="text-align: justify;">Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA is pleased to introduce to the users of our web site a new app, created by Orthodox Web Solutions (Rev.

A church that does not make it&rsquo;s people holy is not a church, it is merely an organization which uses the word 'Church'. The Church celebrates the memory of the holy ones, the saints, to show us living examples of people whose souls were saved, so that we can imitate them in our lives. They teach us how to please God. Today is the Sunday of All Saints of Ukraine and we commemorate all of those men, women and children that are famously known to us and those who are known only to God.</p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://uocofusa.org/news_140616_1.html Sunday of the Man Born Blind http://uocofusa.org/news_160519_1.html Mon, 30 May 2016 00:00:00 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://uocofusa.org/display_image.php?ext=jpg&relativeimage=images/icons/blindman.jpg&archive=0&final_h=122&final_w=90&percent=100"><p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him&rdquo; (John9:3).
