Всіх Святих угодників Божих - 07/01/16

У першу неділю після П'ятидесятниці - дня народження Церкви Христової, ми молитовно вшановуємо всіх святих угодників Божих. Ми, члени Церкви земної, віддаємо свою шану та засвідчуємо молитовне єднання з членами небесної Церкви. Слово "святий" походить від грецького слова hagios, що означає "присвячений Богу, святий, священний, благочестивий".


Sunday of All Saints of Ukraine – What is the Purpose for this Sunday? - 07/01/16

On the second Sunday after Pentecost our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church celebrates the Sunday of All Saints of Ukraine. Sadly, many of our parishes are witnessing a decline in Sunday worship and in membership. Our parishes are doing everything possible just to keep up with the monthly expenses. Is praying for the bills to be paid the main purpose for the Church? There is another purpose for the church – that purpose is to make people holy. A church that does not make it’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.
