When people saw this man blind from birth, they immediately thought that God had sent him this misfortune as a severe punishment for his sins, or those of his parents, because children are often punished for their parents&rsquo; sins.</p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://uocofusa.org/news_160519_1.html Проповідь на неділю про самарянку http://uocofusa.org/news_140517_2.html Sat, 13 May 2017 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/Samaryanka_s.jpg&archive=0&final_h=136&final_w=90&percent=100"><p style="text-align: justify;">У сьогоднішньому Євангелії ми слухаємо цікаву і глибоку розмову між Ісусом Христом і жінкою-самарянкою. Ця розмова відбувається за містом біля криниці. Ісус Христос, як дійсна криниця, яка має у собі джерело живої води, приходить, сідає біляї криниці Якова і чекає на спраглу людину. Розмова відбувається якраз опівдні, коли сонце стоїть в зеніті, коли людина почувається спраглою.

It was perhaps the worst time of the day to visit Jacob&rsquo;s well. But water was the life blood of any Samaritan village and the community well had to be visited daily. There would be no avoiding it even though this particular Samaritan woman, whom tradition calls Photini, had little desire to have any kind of chance meetings with fellow Samaritans. Her life, with its multiple marriages and taint of fornication, had made her an outcast among the other good women of this town. In order to avoid the shame and displeasure of being shunned, she came late that day. The resulting meeting with the man who waited at the well, despite the initial social awkwardness of this seemingly chance encounter, would change everything.</p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://uocofusa.org/news_140517_1.html Про сліпонародженого http://uocofusa.org/news_150513_1.html Sun, 21 May 2017 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;По вірі вашій, нехай буде вам.&rdquo; Сказав Господь.

This is especially true when we compare Luke and Acts, since they are considered two volumes of a set. The Gospel relates the life of Christ in the flesh, while Acts relates the story of the Risen Christ at work in the church. But we also see this matching in John&rsquo;s Gospel and Acts, the two texts read closely during this period.</p></div> Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA http://uocofusa.org/news_140501_4.html
