Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
9/12/18, 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: Hebrews 3:5-11,17-19 & Luke 19:37-44
Tuesday: Hebrews 4:1-13 & Luke 19:45-48
Wednesday: Hebrews 5:11-6:8 & Luke 20:1-8
Thursday: Hebrews 7:1-6 & Luke 20:9-18
Friday: Hebrews 7:18-25 & Luke 20:19-26
Saturday: Ephesians 2:11-13 & Luke 12:32-40

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

By St. Justin (Popovich):

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:

Confession & Communion Gudelines 
8/12/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


A soft reminder that it is the tradition of the Church that we partake of the sacrament of Confession before we partake of Holy Communion. Those who live less than 30 minutes from the parish, are not very old, very sick, or very young should (and by should be mean must) confess at Vigil the evening before partaking of Holy Communion. We notice that some folks who DO live more than 30 minutes away are at Vigil regularly but dont go to confession then, but rather the morning of the Liturgy. That is just silly! :) Everyone who is at Vigil and plans to partake the next day should confess no matter where they live. Confession before Liturgy is reserved for those who live far away, those who are very old, very sick, or very young. But if the young, the old, and the sick are at Vigil they should not wait until the next morning! Please contact Fr. Gregory or Fr. Moses with questions, or visit our web page dedicated to this topic, which has LOTS of resources:
