Two Chalices – What to do? 
11/2/20, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank God, we have the opportunity almost every Sunday to commune from two chalices. But we don’t really commune from two chalices – we commune from only one. And the EXACT SAME COMMUNION is in every chalice. Both of our chalices, and every chalice in the entire Orthodox Church. Since the Communion is the same we should go to the chalice that is most convenient for all of our brothers and sisters. In other words, we should go to the chalice that has the fewest people in line. At the beginning of Communion it is hard to tell which is the shorter line, but usually after a little time the line in the middle is longer. Some of those who are in that line should, with proper decorum, move to the other line. Or if the line on the side is longer, some folks should move to the middle. It doesn’t matter which priest is communing the people at which place – the Communion is exactly the same. Please be kind and gracious to our fellow believers and go to the shortest line, to the greatest extent possible. If you have questions please see Fr. Gregory or Fr. Moses.

New Martyrs of the Russian Church this Sunday 
6/2/20, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

This Sunday marks the annual commemoration of the New Martyrs of the Russian Church. It is important that we understand that this feast encompasses all those who gave up their lives for Christ during the darkest years of the Soviet period - from Russia, to Ukraine, to the Baltic States, to Central Asia and beyond. The first priestly martyr of the Revolution was... St. John Kochurov from... Chicago! He had returned to St. Petersburg to visit family and was caught up in a mob that killed him for being a priest. This day also marks the name's day of our Archbishop Peter. His Eminence is named in honor of New Hieromartyr Peter of Krutitsa, who is commemorated on this day. Let us all gather in the parish church this Sunday to mark this important feast for us all. Tertulian wrote: "The blood of the martyrs waters the seed of the Church..." and we see that seed growing today in Russia, in America, and throughout the world. It is our Christian obligation to honor the martyrs. And certainly it is our obligation to pray for Archbishop Peter especially on this day as our first leader in this his diocese. May the Lord grant His Eminence many years, and may He grant us the zeal to always honor the sacrifice of the martyrs!
