“…in the end, to be Christian is not simply to follow rules and assent to propositions; to be Christian is to love in the form of the greatest commandment. Like being a dancer, it is to perform love in such a way that love (God) has seized our being.”
-Dr. Aristotle Papanikolaou
Aristotle Papanikolaou is Professor of Theology and the Archbishop Demetrios Chair in Orthodox Theology and Culture at Fordham University He is Co-Director of the Orthodox Christian Studies Center at Fordham University.
“Every temple of the Lord is a house of divine Presence and a house of prayer.
Every temple is also a house of peace. May the soul of all those who enter into this holy
temple to take part in the assembly of God, become itself a house of peace.”
from Serve the Lord With Gladness by A Monk of the Eastern Church
“It does not matter how much we give,
but how much love we put into our giving.”

REMEMBER ST GEORGE CHURCH IN YOUR WILL OR ESTATE PLAN
The Work of Jesus Christ: “…it is our Orthodox teaching that the Church continues the work of Christ on earth. When laypeople sing in the choir, teach Sunday school, instruct their children to pray, etc., they are doing the work of the Church.”
- Fr. Stanley S. Harakas, Contemporary Moral Issues
“With us everything should be secondary compared to our concern with children, and their upbringing in the instruction of the Lord."

Prokeimenon. Fourth Mode. Psalm 103.24,1.
O Lord, how manifold are your works. You have made all things in wisdom.
Verse: Bless the Lord, O my soul.
The reading is from St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians 16:13-24.
Brethren, be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. Now, brethren, you know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and they have devoted themselves to the service of the saints; I urge you to be subject to such men and to every fellow worker and laborer. I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicos, because they have made up for your absence; for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. Give recognition to such men. The churches of Asia send greetings. Aquila and Prisca, together with the church in their house, send you hearty greetings in the Lord. All the brethren send greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss. I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. If any one has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
13th Sunday of Matthew
The Reading is from Matthew 21:33-42
The Lord said this parable, "There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit; and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them. Afterward he sent his son to them, saying 'They will respect my son.' But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.' And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?" They said to him, "He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons." Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the scriptures: 'The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?'"
The feast today in honour of the Archangel Michael commemorates the great miracle he wrought when he delivered from destruction a church and holy spring named for him. The pagans, moved by malice, sought to destroy the aforesaid church and holy spring by turning the course of two rivers against them. But the Archangel appeared and, by means of the Cross and a great earthquake that shook the entire area, diverted the waters into an underground course. Henceforth, the name of that place changed from Colossae to Chonae, which means "funnels" in Greek.
'Ως των αιχμαλωτων ελευθερωτης, και των πτωχων υπεραπιστης, ασθενουντων ιατρος, βασιλεων υπερμαχος, Τροπαιοφορε Μεγαλομαρτυς Γεωργιε, πρεσβευε Χριστω τω Θεω, σωθηναι τας ψυχας ημων.
