Недiля 4-та пiсля Пасхи, про розслабленого - 05/19/16

Сьогодні уже приходить четвертий тиждень після Світло Христoвoгo Вoскресiння, якoгo всi християни чекали з великим нетерпiнням, в якoму кoжний iз нас вiдчуває велику радiсть i має надiю на майбуття i життя вiчне. Ми вдячнi Всевишньoму Бoгу за Йoгo благoслoвiння i безмежну любoв дo нас. Гoспoдь, який дає нам життя i все, щo ми прoсимo у нього, вимагає від нас вiдкрити нашi серця у любoвi дo ближньoгo, у пoкаяннi, i дoдержаннi Йoгo запoвiдей.


The Healing of the Paralytic - 05/19/16

Today’s Gospel is the usual reading for the ‘Third Sunday After Pascha’. This is the third in a series of six Sundays between the feast days of Pascha and Pentecost, which help to form the fifty-day period between the Resurrection of Christ and the coming of the Holy Spirit.


Неділя жінок – мироносиць - 05/10/16

Вони рано-вранці, купивши пахощі, спішать до гробу, в якому спочив Ісус. Мироносиці добре знають, що гріб Ісуса охороняють воїни, що до гробу заборонено наближатися, але вони йдуть, наперекір усьому, з твердою вірою і надією, що здійснять свій намір. Вони йдуть за покликом сердець, в яких живе щира, самовіддана любов до Ісуса, а любов не знає страху, не боїться погроз, перепон — любов усе перемагає, бо де є любов, там є Бог.


SUNDAY OF THE MYRRH-BEARERS - 05/10/16

In today’s Gospel we hear of three women who were approaching the tomb of their Master, their Teacher and their Friend. Their hearts were heavy and their steps labored. How could this have happened? It was only days before that they were with Him as He taught and preached. No person had ever preached as He did; no one performed the great miracles that He accomplished. Surely He was the One; the Son of God, the Messiah!


Paschal Sermon of St. John Chrysostom - 04/29/16

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. If any have delayed until the ninth hour, let him draw near, fearing nothing. If any have tarried even until the eleventh hour, let him, also, be not alarmed at his tardiness; for the Lord, who is jealous of his honor, will accept the last even as the first; he gives rest unto him who comes at the eleventh hour, even as unto him who hath wrought from the first hour. And he shows mercy upon the last, and cares for the first; and to the one he gives, and upon the other he bestows gifts. And he both accepts the deeds, and welcomes the inten­tion, and honors the acts and praises the offering.


St. Mary of Egypt - 04/08/16

“You will indeed drink the cup that I drink, and with the baptism I am baptized with you will be baptized;” Christ admonishes His disciples. When in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prays, “let this cup pass from me…” Let me avoid this suffering. His human will is fearful of the pain which He will endure and this is the cup that the disciples will share. All but one of the disciples, all but the beloved Saint John, met their end in the death of martyrdom.


ХРЕСТОПОКЛОННА НЕДІЛЯ - 04/01/16

Ось ми знаходимося в середині Великого посту. Кожна людина зазвичай дуже ревно розпочинає піст. Перші два тижні ми наполегливо змагаємося зі своїми пристрастями, але коли проминає час, ми знесилюємося. Дещо про такі людські немочі знає і Церква, тому в цю неділю вона ставить нам за взірець Ісуса Христа, Який був розп'ятий на хресті.
