Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
12/4/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Whoever enters on the true path of pleasing God, or who begins with the aid of grace to strive toward God on the path of Christs law, will inevitably be threatened by the danger of losing his way at the crossroads, of going astray and perishing, imagining himself saved. These crossroads are unavoidable because of the sinful inclinations and disorder of ones faculties which are capable of presenting things in a false light to deceive and destroy a man. To this is joined the flattery of Satan, who is reluctant to be separated from his victims and, when someone from his domain goes to the light of Christ, pursues him and sets every manner of net in order to catch him again and quite often he indeed catches him.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
11/4/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Isaiah 37:33-38:6, Genesis 13:12-18, Proverbs 14:27-15:4
Tuesday: Isaiah 40:18-31, Genesis 15:1-15, Proverbs 15:7-19
Wednesday: Isaiah 41:4-14, Genesis 17:1-9, Proverbs 15:20-16:9
Thursday: Isaiah 42:5-16, Genesis 18:20-33, Proverbs 16:17-17:17
Friday: Isaiah 45:11-17, Genesis 22:1-18, Proverbs 17:17-18:5
Saturday: Hebrews 9:24-28 & Mark 8:27-31

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

Almsgiving at St. Vladimirs this Great Lent 
10/4/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Almsgiving is a strong tradition of the Holy Church during lenten periods. As we spend less on our food at these times of year we take that extra and give it to those less fortunate. At St. Vladimir's we will collect alms according to the following schedule this Great Lent:

ALMSGIVING GREAT LENT 2021

If you are not able to join us, but would like to support these efforts, please contact our Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov, to discuss support options: treasurer@stvladimiraami.org
