Message from Father John


Material, intellectual, spiritual and other riches are  gifts  of God to us.  God granted them to us through inheritance or through our acquisition; we acquired them through His gifts and abilities to us.  Naked we were born in this world and we’ll leave this world without any of our possessions.

Riches are given to us to use them wisely for good and not misuse them for evil.  The ancient Greeks called money  chrimata,  items to be used.  In a light spirit, someone said that “the gold coins were made round in order to roll and not to stay in one place.”  Money is not a value of itself; rather it has value when it is used and shared with others.  The riches are given to us for our needs  but also to help those in need of assistance.

The young man in the Gospel lesson asked Jesus what to do to inherit eternal life.  Jesus pointed out to him the 10 Commandments.  When he said that he had kept them  from his youth,  Jesus told him to use his riches  to inherit eternal life, and come to join him.  But he walked away from His advice. Can you imagine where he would have  been today, if the young man had followed Jesus’ advice!

Many times we don’t take the advice of our parents or of other wise people when we are young.  When we grow older, we realize what great mistake we made.  God has given us a spiritual way to reverse the damage.  He called it repentance and confession.  The Prodigal Son used it and he returned to his father. 

Let us also return to our Heavenly Father, if we have gone astray.  Let us also use wisely His gifts to us, as He has told us.  For our true destination is life with God forever.  Our Christian Faith and Godly deeds are our ticket to it.

With love, Fr. John P. Angelis



Hymns of the Day

Resurrectional Apolytikion in the Plagal First Tone

O Faithful, let us sing a hymn of praise and worship to the Logos, coeternal with the Father and the Spirit, who was born of the Virgin for our salvation. Of His own will He went upon the Cross in the flesh and suffered death, to raise the dead through His glorious Resurrection.

Apolytikion for Forefeast of the Entry of the Theotokos in the Fourth Tone

By blossoming forth the only Ever-virgin as fruit, today holy Anna doth betroth us all unto joy, instead of our former grief; on this day she doth fulfil her vows to the Most High, leading her with joy into the Lord's holy temple, who truly is the temple and pure Mother of God the Word.

Seasonal Kontakion in the Fourth Tone

The whole world is filled today with joy and gladness on the Theotokos's auspicious and resplendent feast, whereon with great voice it crieth out: The heavenly tabernacle is she in truth.

Gospel and Epistle Readings

Epistle Reading

Prokeimenon. Plagal First Tone. Psalm 11.7,1.
You, O Lord, shall keep us and preserve us.
Verse: Save me, O Lord, for the godly man has failed.

The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Galatians 6:11-18.

BRETHREN, see with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand. It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that would compel you to be circumcised, and only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. For even those who receive circumcision do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may glory in your flesh. But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule, upon the Israel of God. Henceforth let no man trouble me; for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen.

Gospel Reading

9th Sunday of Luke
The Reading is from Luke 12:16-21

The Lord said this parable: "The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; and he thought to himself, 'What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?' And he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.' But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?' So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." As he said these things, he cried out: "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
